Currently, I have Many Azure VMs for clients, and We are doing the backup, disaster recovery, and tactical replication for all of them.
We install the backup stack for our clients. We explain the situation and have our technical team complete the installation for the clients.
With set up managed retention using the backup policy. We do retention, and we do security.
The level of security is high on it.
Most of our clients used to have Mac storage in all of their offices, such as NAS (network-attached storage) by 20, or 30 terabytes. We have informed our clients, rather than keep their storage on-premises and risking it getting damaged with no disaster recovery, it would be better to synchronize it and move it to the cloud. Some of the clients will keep it on the cloud while some others have to keep it on-premises and on the cloud at the same time for direct synchronization.
The backup is configured as replication or synchronized between both of them.
When we install for the client, they have a full solution. All of their computers are connected to a single sign-on with Office 365. They all have a domain on the Microsoft cloud. Included with this we add Azure, all of their HR software, ERP, and accounting on the cloud. The add-on backup to the environment will be with Microsoft.
