Microsoft Azure : Flexible, Enterprise-grade Cloud Computing Platform

The Windows Azure platform is Microsoft’s cloud service for providing on‑demand computing and storage resources. It is ideal for hosting collaboration systems, running big data applications, and migrating applications out of over-taxed data centres.

All the data stored in the cloud are not safe despite having security measures, organizations constantly face cyber threats. This thing points to some questions– Are your company’s IT applications and data secured? How will we recover data if there will be any cyber-attack? How safe is your cloud backup? So data security, backup, and disaster recovery is the main concern of Azure.

Data Back-up

The Azure Backup service backs up data to the Microsoft Azure cloud in case if there would be any cyber-attack. You can back up on-premises machines and workloads, and Azure virtual machines (VMs).

Why use Azure Backup?

Azure Backup delivers these key benefits:

  • Offload on-premises backupAzure Backup offers an uncomplicated solution for backing up your on-premises resources to the cloud. Get short and long-term backup without the need to deploy complex on-premises backup solutions.
  •  Azure IaaS VMs : Azure Backup provides self-governing and remote backups to safeguard against unexpected damage of primary data. Backups are stored in a Recovery Services vault with built-in managed of recovery points. Configuration and scalability are simple, backups are optimized, and you can easily restore as needed.
  • App-consistent backupsIt suggests the recovery point has all the needed data to restore the backup copy. Azure Backup renders application-consistent backups, which assure additional fixes are not needed to recover the data. Restoring application-consistent data lessens the restoration time enables you to quickly return to a running state.
  • Automatic storage management  – Hybrid environments often demand heterogeneous storage – some on-premises and some in the cloud. With Azure Backup, there is no cost for working on-premises storage devices. Azure Backup automatically allots and handles backup storage, and its pay-as-you-use model helps you only pay for the storage you consume.

Disaster Recovery

It supports your business to be active even during major IT blackouts. Azure Site Recovery allows ease of deployment, cost-effectiveness, and dependability. Deploy replication, failover and recovery processes through Site Recovery to assist to maintain your applications running during planned and unplanned blackouts

Security 

Reliable Framework: Azure cloud is made with customized hardware, has built-in security controls into the hardware and firmware components, and it also has a backup plan for a threat like DDoS. Azure has 3,500 global cyber security experts to protect your business assets and data in Azure.

Built-in controls security: Give protection to your data with built-in controls and services in Azure across identity, data, networking, and apps. Azure helps in having deeper insights from Azure Security Center to give constant protection of data. Besides, it has protections to hybrid environments and easily integrated partner solutions in Azure.

Detect threats early with Machine learning:Using machine learning and A.I., Microsoft data scientists analyse the plenty of data in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph. The resulting insights inform services in Azure and help you detect threats faster.
