First of all, you can schedule a backup for the client. You can schedule it as you like. You can also control the bandwidth, so the backup will not utilize. The internet will depend on the bandwidth.

Azure Backup is good because it is entirely cloud-based, which means that you can be 99.9% sure that your backup is safe.

The fact that Azure Backup is integrated is one of its biggest advantages.

The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it is easy to create a backup by using Azure Backup. It also has a good user interface and nice features for sending notifications when any backup fails or there is a change in the status of virtual machines.

It's very simple to configure which is very useful. It's not complex to configure it.

We would like to see some kind of notification given to the user that a file was not synchronized well or what may have happened.

It doesn't have the option to have a backup from the database. It has backup for the files, folders, and backup only the whole virtual machine. But if I need to do a backup from the Oracle database, from an Exchange server or from SharePoint, this ability isn't there. There is no application backup.

The user interface is a little bit confusing and it could be better.

The compression ratio of the backup data should be improved.

I once tried restoring a Linux environment, and the size of the Linux VM or the data disk was really huge. It took a really long time to restore the environment and send the data from the storage to the disk. It took around 25 to 30 minutes, which was much longer than I anticipated. They can improve the duration of such restore operations. In the next release, it would also be good if they could reduce the duration for transferring the data from their storage to the actual storage while creating a virtual machine. They can reduce the duration or increase the data transfer rate.

To make it a ten, it should have the ability to extend the retention and to perform a copy of the data outside of the subscription - with no additional costs.

The solution is quite technical. I wouldn't describe it as user friendly. It could be simplified a lot to make it more accessible to the average user.
