Data is important, whether it's stored on- or offline it's always good to have backups. Protecting your assets is a serious and cautious task. With the coming of hybrid solutions and configurations we get a lot of possibilities to do cloud backup. In this talk I'll talk about what the Azure platform can provide you as support for backing up your assets: topics brought to attention are Blob Storage, Backup Vault, SQL Server and SQL databases, geo-redundancy and much, much more. This will be backed with out-of-the box tools, partner tools and common tools.
With modern development, more than ever both applications and environments require frequent changes.
