How To Backup And Restore A Virtual Machine In Azure

No-one needs to tell you how important it is to have a good backup of each Virtual Machine (VM), and as you’d expect Azure has you covered. In this snip, we look at creating an Azure storage vault to store the backups and explore the settings we have available like backup schedule, retention periods etc.

Then we look at what option we have for adding and removing the VM to the backup, and what happens to the data when it is removed. From there we move on to looking at how we restore a machine from the vault and what options we have available.
