In recent months, I have worked with my peer and colleague MVP Adin Ermien (@AdinErmie) something special for you.

We wanted to bring in a new resource from Microsoft Azure backup a platform for a community that is complete, comprehensive, concise and free. We wanted to share a copy of this Whitepaper so you can start digging Azure backup service in Microsoft Azure.

In a nutshell, Azure backup is an Azure-based service that you can use to back up (or protect) and restore your data in the Microsoft cloud service. Azure Backup replaces your current on-premises or off-site backup solution with a reliable, secure, and cost-effective cloud-based solution.
