In this lesson, learn about the various implementation scenarios to deploy Azure Backup, as well as the supported workloads based on the implementation.
- [Instructor] Now that we've talked about Azure backup,…let's look at some scenarios that you can implement.…We have four options for Azure backup.…We can use the Azure Backup agent.…We can use System Center Data Protection Manager,…Azure Backup Server, or the Azure virtual machine extension.…Your needs will dictate which scenario you use.…Let's start off with the Azure Backup agent,…or MARS which stands for Microsoft Azure Recovery Services.…If you've been working with Azure for some time,…this will be very familiar to you…as this was the first implementation of Azure backup.…
When you use the backup agent,…you can only protect files and folders.…You have a maximum of three backups per day.…It is not application aware…and there is no Linux support for the agent.…All of your backups are stored…in the Azure Recovery Services vault.…Let's go ahead and take a look at what this would look like.…Here you can see our on-premises environment and Azure…and we have some files and folders there.…And you can install the agent on Server 2008 SP2 and above…
