Azure Backup Valuable Features
One of the most valuable features is security and connectivity to the data.
The hardware is nice. We configure the hardware and can choose anywhere from two cores to 56 cores.
We configure the machines the way we want.View full review »
It's a native solution provided by Microsoft. It solves the needs we have. We are using it at most places, unless, and until there is some specific requirement where there's a database or something, which you're getting out of the box from Azure Backup. That's when we go for other third-party backup solutions. Otherwise, for the VM backups and all of that, it's a great product. It's one of the best solutions for backups.
It's easy to use.
The storage cost is not too much.
It gives you what you would like to have from a basic solution, like machine backup, or for your snapshots. Everything can be done from the platform itself.
The management interface is very intuitive and familiar. It makes it a lot easier for anyone to manage it or to actually work on it.View full review »
As a security setting, Azure is very detailed. We can add features on retentions and retain the backup for several days. The retention policies are very good. I like the notifications and multiple layers of security that the solution offers. It enables us and our clients to feel secure and you can install and connect your systems wherever you are.

With a couple of buttons, we can configure a VM for a backup and use the wall service, the storage wall service, pretty seamlessly.
From a day-to-day operation perspective, the installation and configuration of the Azure Backup and the backup timing are great. It offers a non-intrusive backup - like a snapshot type of backup. This way, we don't see any impact when running the backup and the job runs without any problem unless the VM host itself is having some problems.
From the stability aspect of it, the execution aspect, I don't see any issues.
This solution is easy to configure and restore. It is a Microsoft product so is easily compatible with other solutions.View full review »

The most valuable features will depend on the environment and if you're using the cloud platform, or if you want to keep your backup on-premise.View full review »
