Overview

The backup tools in Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 Essentials, and System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager, working together with the Microsoft Azure Backup Service, allow the creation of (incremental or full) backups of local systems in Microsoft Azure Storage. Backups can then be loaded very easily on any server systems as needed.
