Here's What Our Clients Say About Us

Andrew Reynolds Group CEO

Reynolds Logistics

Managing a Data Center with limited Support Staff was always a pain, starting with hardware upgrades and occasional hardware failures to software & licensing upgrades. Moving all our Servers to Azure Cloud has not only made the management hassle-free, but resulted in Communication Square as the One Stop Vendor for all our Support needs.

How does Azure backup work? 

You can back up machines and data by using a number of methods: 

Back up on-premises machines:

  • You can back up on-premises Windows machines directly to Azure Backup by using the Microsoft Azure Recovery Services (MARS) agent. Linux machines aren't supported. 
  • You can back up on-premises machines to a backup server - either System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) or Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS). You can then back up the backup server to a Recovery Services vault in Azure.

Back up Azure VMs:

  • You can back up Azure VMs directly. Azure Backup installs a backup extension to the Azure VM agent that's running on the VM. This extension backs up the entire VM. 
  • You can back up specific files and folders on the Azure VM by running the MARS agent. 
  • You can back up Azure VMs to the MABS that's running in Azure, and you can then back up the MABS to a Recovery Services vault. 

How many types of Azure backup storage options are there? 

There are 2 types of azure backup storage option.
Locally redundant storage (LRS)
Geo-redundant storage (GRS)
Which one you choose, depends upon your requirement and back up needs. 

Is Azure backup incremental? 

Yes Azure Backup is incremental.  Incremental Backups achieve high storage and network efficiency by storing only the blocks that change since the previous backup. 

What type of backup and restore is possible with Azure backup? 

In case of Azure VM there are two types of restoration options. In-place Restore and Creating a new Virtual Machine using the backed up resource.

In In-Place restore you will replace the existing VM and if you use the other option you will create new VM using the previous OS disk and Data disk. 

What is Microsoft Azure Backup Server? 

Microsoft Azure Backup Server (MABS) is a server product that can be used to back up on-premises physical servers, VMs, and apps running on them. 

MABS is based on System Center DPM and provides similar functionality with a few differences: 

  • No System Center license is required to run MABS. 
  • For both MABS and DPM, Azure provides long-term backup storage. In addition, DPM allows you to back up data for long-term storage on tape. MABS doesn't provide this functionality. 
  • You can back up a primary DPM server with a secondary DPM server. The secondary server will protect the primary server database and the data source replicas stored on the primary server. If the primary server fails, the secondary server can continue to protect workloads that are protected by the primary server, until the primary server is available again. 

What is application consistent backup in Azure? 

Application consistent backup ensures that the backed-up data is transitionally consistent, and that applications will boot up post VM restore. To ensure transactional consistency, applications need to be quiesced and there should be no unfinished transactions when taking a VM snapshot. 

Can I setup my Server Backups on Azure? 

Yes you can, Microsoft Azure Backups support backing up both Cloud and On-Premises Resources

Are Azure backups encrypted? 

Microsoft backups are encrypted at all times i.e. while in transit as well as at rest.
