Azure Backup Review

Cloud-based, simple, stable, and the support is good

What is our primary use case?

We use Azure databases and we run a backup script for it.

What is most valuable?

I like that it's a simple system.

It's a cloud product and service for dummies.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better integration with more products, and more services. 

There are new products coming up all of the time with better integration. There are a number of things that are happening.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Azure Backup for several years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable solution. We have 100 users and we plan to continue using it.

How are customer service and technical support?

Because it's part of Microsoft, you can have technical support from Microsoft.

How was the initial setup?

There is no installation, it's all in the cloud. You're just building into it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Price-wise, it's similar to AWS. 

It's always better to see a lower price.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated several. IBM has similar services, as well as Azure, AWS, Rackspace offers some services but not the same as Azure. You have Google entering the space too, so you have GCP with them.

What other advice do I have?

It's a competitor to Amazon.

I would recommend this solution to others.

I would rate Azure Backup a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
