Hyper-V snapshot vs. Azure Blob snapshot?

    Question

  • We're researching the possibility of moving some of our production Hyper-V VMs to Azure. Prior to installing Windows updates I usually take a snapshot. If I use Cloud Xplorer to take snapshots in Azure is there a difference from taking Hyper-V snapshot?

    What are most people doing for manual snaps in Azure?

  • Hi

    Windows Azure has been described as a "cloud layer" on top of a number of Windows Server systems, which use Windows Server and a customized version of Hyper-V, known as the Windows Azure Hypervisor to provide virtualization of services. 

    You can treat it as a Hyper-V VM host on Azure dataCenter.

    There is no difference between Azure VM and Hyper-V host on your local.

  • The two are very different in implementation, being only similar is concept. You know that.

    I am hoping you get a better answer myself.
