We are excited to share the auto-protection capability for SQL Server in Azure Virtual Machines (VM). This is a key addition to the public preview ofAzure Backup for SQL Server on Azure VM, announced earlier this year. Azure Backup for SQL Server is anenterprisecredible, zero-infrastructure pay as you go (PAYG) service that leverages native SQL backup and restore APIs to provide a comprehensive solution to backup SQL servers running in Azure VMs.
What happens when you add a new database to your protected SQL Server? You need to rediscover the database and then manually trigger configure protection to backup that database. Now imagine if we take away the work from you and automatically detect and protect each new database you add to the instance. Our new auto-protection feature does just that.
