Configure Azure Backup from Windows Admin Center

Windows Admin Center offers a great web interface for managing Windows Server. Microsoft’s desire to bring the capabilities of the hybrid cloud to on-premises systems has led to the inclusion of the Azure Backup feature in Windows Admin Center. Now you can configure Azure Backup for your Windows Server with just a few clicks and save your time and resources. This is especially suitable for those who have a small environment in a data center. Or maybe it is hosted by another service provider, where having your own backup infrastructure does not make much sense.

3-2-1 Backup strategy – why your data always survives

Data is the lifeblood of any businesses. That is why its loss can be comparable to the loss of vital organs. In order not to bring the situation to a critical state, backup is mandatory. The 3-2-1 backup strategy is most effective and based on making three copies of your data, two of which are stored on different media, and one is located offsite. In terms of keeping data off-site, backups can be stored on tapes, which today are the cheapest and most reliable carrier. But infrastructures that are completely focused on tape devices are expensive and do not provide decent performance. That is why virtual tape library with a public cloud storage tier may be a good alternative. StarWind offers StarWind Virtual Tape Library (VTL) – a solution allowing to make backup processes faster and more cost-efficient. So, why does the sequence of these numbers, 3-2-1, have magical power for your peace of mind and how does StarWind VTL fit in well with this backup plan?

Wasabi + Veeam + StarWind: Don’t put your “backup” eggs in one basket

The golden rule for the safety of your data is as follows: always back up and distribute copies to different locations. However, the choice of backup environments can be accompanied by high-cost issues, security concerns, the risk of service interruption/termination, and so on. Storing your data in the cloud seems to be the most optimal solution. But even here you may encounter certain troubles such as the need to pay for all services, subscriptions, service plans, and configuration of a public cloud storage provider. Do you want to know about a backup storage solution that eliminates the drawbacks of costly backup processes and meets regulatory data archival and retention requirements?
