Azure Backup Service for onpremises backup on SAN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we have a Backup Server with Windows 2012 R2 and Azure Backup Service installed. The backup on Azure Cloud is OK. Now we want to backup onpremises using an available SAN, is it possibile? If not someone knows if MS is working on this feature. It would be very strange that Azure Backup Service could backup onpremises only on the Backup Server.... 

    Regards.

  • For clarification, do you want to backup data to on-premises SAN storage by using Azure backup?

    If yes, Azure backup doesn’t support to backup data to on-premises SAN storage.

  • You are correct, in the current architecture of Azure Backup Server, the Azure Backup vault holds the second copy of the data while the local storage holds the first (and mandatory) backup copy. The first backup copy is kept on storage attached to the Azure Backup Server machine. For more information about adding disks, see Configure storage pools and disk storage.

  • Correct! Do you confirm to me that is possibile to backup data on premises with ABS only on the server where is located the ABS software?

    We want to backup different on sites VM on Azure and on premises.

    Tks.
