A solid database backup plan is just as critical in the cloud as on-premise, but SQL Server in Azure - in both IaaS and PaaS implementations - introduces new twists to this fundamental topic. In this presentation you’ll gain familiarity with SQL Server in Azure by examining SQL Server 2014+ database backup options. We’ll look at native SQL backups and Azure Blob Storage, SQL Managed Backups, Azure SQL Database backups and more. Since backups are only part of the picture, we’ll also look at the tools and techniques available to manage and recover backup files and restore databases in Azure.
