Azure backup and recovery

Automated Azure-native backup built for today’s enterprise to overcome any cloud data loss


Backup 10 Azure VMs FREE

Native Azure backup and recovery

Microsoft Azure provides a reliable cloud computing platform for agile and scalable building, testing and deployment of modern apps. While Microsoft assumes responsibility for the infrastructure, their Shared Responsibility Model makes it clear that it is still your data and you retain the responsibility to secure and protect it.

Veeam® provides enterprise-ready Azure backup and recovery capabilities, fully automated for protecting and managing all your Azure data at scale with ease. Cost-effectiveness and security are front of mind without sacrificing reliability or SLA attainment, eliminating the risk of data loss while avoiding cloud overspend and unexpected costs.

Does Azure back up your data?
The short answer is no. Microsoft does not keep backups of your data. Per their Shared Responsibility Model, it is your responsibility to ensure data is secured and protected, among other components, depending on whether it is IaaS, PaaS or SaaS being consumed.
Why should you back up Azure?
Backup and recovery of data in Microsoft Azure remains the responsibility of the end user, as referenced in the Microsoft Shared Responsibility Model. Without backup and recovery, your applications or data cannot be restored to overcome data loss due to accidental deletion, cybersecurity threats and ransomware, outage, etc. Veeam delivers enterprise-grade Azure backup and recovery that’s cost-effective and secure, protecting you against any cloud data loss.
How does Veeam's Azure backup and recovery work?
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure can automatically create and manage snapshots and backups of Azure VMs (managed or unmanaged VHDs), including VM configuration. Backup chains can be created with image-level backups or with snapshots. Image-level backups can include full and incremental backups. Cloud-native snapshots include point-in-time snapshots. Recovery can be performed at the full- and file-level in as little as seconds.
