  • 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


    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.
