"Perfect for in-cloud backup"

Comments: This is a great tool to easily back up data on an Azure based VM.

Pros: It is now very easy to enable and configure for workloads running on servers within Azure. There are options to configure the basic settings directly on the virtual machine blade itself.

Cons: It is not a great option for local workloads. While you can configure it for local and cloud backup it is cumbersome and the reporting is not the greatest.

"One of Microsofts more expensive products, with average delivery."

Pros: Great integration with other Microsoft tools, and even other operating systems. User-friendly for storing data (Very secure,) great for beginners to set up.

Cons: Pricing is affordable but can get very expensive right away. The pay-as-you-go option is deceptive. Tech support is at an additional cost.

"Cost effective solution"

Comments: A reliable and trustworthy backup source

Pros: Azure works so well within the Microsoft world, it seamlessly integrates with most Microsoft applications. The security of having cloud integration gives you peace of mind that your files are secure in the cloud. You can also set Azure to backup automatically at pre-configured times.

Cons: Access to training was a bit hard to find, and if you want any support, thats gonna cost you over and above what your paying for the service.

"Azure Backup"

Comments: Overall, this solution is an excellent offsite backup.

Pros: It is easy to deploy. Once you setup your account in Azure, you just download your key and the application. You run the application on every server you want to backup. This can be virtual or physical. The application itself looks like Windows Backup. You can set retention limits to be whatever you want. You have very granular control over it. Using the cloud version and not the onsite version is great for file backups. I would not use it for bare metal restores though.

Cons: It can get expensive depending on the retentions you setup. You also can't change the zone types once you setup so if you are in an older plan like me, it is difficult to move to cheaper plans.
