2 Min. Read


For the past couple of months, I’ve been working with my peer and fellow MVP Adin Ermie (@AdinErmie) in something special for you.

We wanted to bring a new resource about the Microsoft Azure Backup platform to the community that is complete, comprehensive, concise, and free. we wanted to share a copy of this Whitepaper so you can start digging into Azure Backup service in Microsoft Azure.

In a nutshell, Azure Backup is the Azure-based service you can use to back up (or protect) and restore your data in the Microsoft cloud. Azure Backup replaces your existing on-premises or off-site backup solution with a cloud-based solution that is reliable, secure, and cost-competitive.
