Azure VM Backup directly from VM’s blade
Azure makes the VMs’ administration simpler every time. Today we will view a very nice new feature, the Backup shortcut at the VM’s blade.
Just click on the VM and select Backup
All you have to configure is the Backup Vault name and the Backup policy at the next easy step and press Enable Backup at the bottom of the “Enable backup” blade and that’s all!!
Now the next time that we will click the Backup shortcut it will show directly the VM’s Backup Settings and run an instant backup. After the first backup we will be able to Restore the VM and also see logging about the backup jobs, like the latest and oldest restore point among others.
Stay tuned for more Azure features
