Azure backup for SQL database.

Copper Contributor

I am currently using Azure Backup for file backup to Azure.  I am looking for information on what products or add-ons I need to backup an existing SQL database as well as the files I am currently backuping up.  The server is a 2012 R2 Standard 64bit.

Any information is appricated.

SQL 2016 has built in functions to allow you to backup directly to a Storage account.

in SQL 2012R2 this can be achieved via powershell tasks.


If you goal is to have a centralized bakup agent for files, VM's and databases you should consider using Data protection Manager.
