  • Azure Backup uses the MARS agent to back up data from on-premises machines and Azure VMs to a backup Recovery Services vault in Azure.

    you can achieve that with DPM

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-architecture#architecture-back-up-to-dpmmabs

    1. You install the DPM or MABS protection agent on machines you want to protect. You then add the machines to a DPM protection group.
      • To protect on-premises machines, the DPM or MABS server must be located on-premises.
      • To protect Azure VMs, the MABS server must be located in Azure, running as an Azure VM.
      • With DPM/MABS, you can protect backup volumes, shares, files, and folders. You can also protect a machine's system state (bare metal), and you can protect specific apps with app-aware backup settings.
    2. When you set up protection for a machine or app in DPM/MABS, you select to back up to the MABS/DPM local disk for short-term storage and to Azure for online protection. You also specify when the backup to local DPM/MABS storage should run and when the online backup to Azure should run.
    3. The disk of the protected workload is backed up to the local MABS/DPM disks, according to the schedule you specified.
    4. The DPM/MABS disks are backed up to the vault by the MARS agent that's running on the DPM/MABS server.
