Microsoft Azure Training 43 – Azure Recovery Services – Part 3 – Azure Backup Server (Exam 70-533)

This is the part 3 of the Azure Recovery Services series. In this session I introduce Azure backup server (MABS); a full blown backup solution similar to Microsoft System Center DPM to backup application workloads like SQL Databases, Exchange, SharePoint etc. In this session I go over the various advantages and disadvantages of using Azure backup server and all the necessary architectural gotchas. I mention in the session that how Azure Backup Server is like DPM but what the differences are.

Microsoft Azure Training 42 – Azure Recovery Services – Part 2 – Azure VM Backup (Exam 70-533)

This is the part 2 of the Azure Recovery Services series. In this series I move on from backing up individual files and folders of a VM to backing up an entire VM in running on Azure. I provide the internal workings on how Azure backup actually backs up an Azure VM and some of the best practices to follow while backing up the Azure VMs. Further I identify that Azure storage account limitations are mostly what impacts the Azure backups and what to watch out for. In the Demo I register an Azure VM to be backed up and create the backup policy as well. After the initial backup is done I show how to restore the VM backup in case the VM were to be corrupted or deleted somehow.
