As you know I am working for Google Cloud where based on my experience and knowledge I have a lot of to do with customers who have VMware on-premises. Naturally this ties perfectly with Google Cloud VMware Engine - Google’s VMware as a Service offering. My customers always have a great concern about Backup & Disaster Recovery topics and I am really happy that VMware announced General Availability of VMware flagship Disaster Recovery solution VMware Site Recovery Manager.
Quite a neat feature of modern backup solutions is a possibility to send “offsite” backup copies to the cloud. Many Public Cloud providers offer very affordable storage solutions. In this post, we will send VMware backups to the cloud using Altaro Offsite Copies to an Azure Cloud Storage. Altaro offers this option using Microsoft Azure Cloud.
