Backup methods /tools available in Azure Cloud

Hi All,

Could someone help me with list of backup tools/ ways we can do backup & restore on Azure Cloud. Need to know the best way to take backup /perform restore for servers built with community edition on Azure Cloud.


You may want to look into snapshot backups, as described here:

I’m not very familiar with Azure, but I’m sure it supports snapshots on persistent disks. You can look into automating the creation of the data disk snapshots by calling the Azure API. One big advantage of snapshot backups is that they will be very fast to create, almost independent of your data and storage size.
