One year ago, Microsoft released Azure Backup Center which is a great central console to perform all the backup related tasks. You can manage your recovery vaults and run backup/restore tasks very easily. The following article was published by Romain on StarWind blog to describe Azure Backup Center.
In this article, I will go deeper with Azure Backup Center in order to explain how to handle virtual appliance backups. Have you ever try to backup a Virtual Appliance (Firewall, Scanner, Network VM, …) with Azure Backup? You probably got a failed error message which is very normal because the agent can’ be installed on your appliance. To avoid this problematic, you had to use disk snapshot through Azure Runbook. It was not user friendly, but thanks to Azure Backup Center, you can now manage disk snapshots very easily.
