Backup and recovery: Ah, IT’s very own sewer service. You manage huge libraries of tapes, babysit backup reports, and test recoveries both weekly and at random. And yet, with all of that, do you ever feel confident in your organization’s backup scheme? Are you ever totally satisfied with how backups are performed?
Well, the cloud has come to the rescue again with a surprisingly good solution, at least for shops that use a lot of Windows, Exchange, SharePoint and SQL Server. It’s the Microsoft Azure Backup Service.
