Configuring Recovery Services Vault
Hello, and welcome to this course, Implementing Microsoft Azure Backup. My first module is Configuring Recovery Services Vault. My name is Gary Grudzinskas. I've been an author and consultant with Microsoft Azure for several years. Here's an overview of what we're going to go over with this first module. I want to start with a good overview of Microsoft Azure backup. I want to tell you what the benefits are for you moving to Azure backup and how to use this product to suit your company's needs. Then we'll set up your first recovery services vault, and I'll show you how to configure how often you take backups, and how long you keep your backup data. Then we're going to install an Azure virtual machine and assign it to a recovery services vault and a backup policy. So let me begin by giving you a good overview of Microsoft Azure backup.

Using Azure Iaas VM Backup
Welcome to this module, Using Azure Infrastructure as a Service Virtual Machine Backup. Here's a good overview of what we're going to do during this course. We're going to begin with a backup of the virtual machine we created with the portal, and then I'll show you how to backup a Linux virtual machine. We'll actually create that virtual machine, and then back it up with the AzureCLI, and then we're going to restore a complete virtual machine with the portal, restore files and folders using the portal, and then restore files with the AzureCLI. Let me begin with our initial backup of our virtual machine.

Using the Azure Backup Agent (MARS)
Welcome to this module, Using the Azure Backup Agent, otherwise known as MARS, and MARS stands for the Microsoft Azure Recovery Services agent. Either way you look at it, whatever you call it, this allows you to back up your on-premises servers and workstations up to the cloud for Microsoft Azure backup. This is an overview of what we're going to cover in this module. First, we're going to download and then set up for the on-premises backup and restoration. We're going to install the Azure Backup client, set up the backup and retention settings, and then back up and restore files. We're going to start with setting up our Microsoft Azure Backup agent.

What I want to do is just get you going on this terrific product. It's much like the Data Protection Manager. You can back up virtual machines, the hosts, the files, application workloads, and do bare bone backups. We're going to install the Azure Backup Server and then back up with the Azure Backup Server, and then recover with the Azure Backup Server. We're going to begin by setting this up.
