  • Currently, Azure does not provide backup for the storage account. Alternatively, you may use the following options:

    You can create a snapshot of a blob container and then download the snapshot for a point in time backup.

    Note: A snapshot is a read-only version of a blob that's taken at a point in time. Snapshots are useful for backing up blobs. After you create a snapshot, you can read, copy, or delete it, but you cannot modify it.

    For more details, refer “Create a blob snapshot”.

    OR

    Copy Blob API that allows you to copy blobs between storage accounts. This enables some interesting scenarios like:

    • Backup your blobs to another storage account without having to retrieve the content and saving it yourself
    • Migrate your blobs from one account to another efficiently with respect to cost and time

    For more details, refer “Introducing Asynchronous Cross-Account Copy Blob”.
