Azure Backup ermöglicht eine native Backup-Lösung für Azure File Shares.

Azure Backup über „Recovery Services Vault“, ist eine einfache Möglichkeit die Dateien zu sichern und sie sicher zu jedem beliebigen Zeitpunkt zurück zu sichern.

Key Features 

  • Discover unprotected file shares: Utilize the Recovery Services vault to discover all unprotected storage accounts and file shares within them.
  • Backup multiple files at a time: You can back up at scale by selecting multiple file shares in a storage account and apply a common policy over them.
  • Schedule and forget: Apply a Backup policy to automatically schedule backups for your file shares. You can schedule backups at a time of your choice and specify the desired retention period. Azure Backup takes care of pruning these backups once they expire.
