TechNet Radio: Server Essentials – Client Backups with Windows Azure Backup

Dan Stolts walks us through the world of automatically backing up your data to the cloud with the help of Windows Azure. Learn how to manage cloud backups from the familiar backup tools in Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 Essentials, or even System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager.

In this episode you will learn how authorized users can easily recover backups to any server as well as how cost effective this new server technology is to deploy.  This out of the box backup solution is perfect for small and midsize  businesses. However, for the enterprise, businesses with many servers or  for those that love to script, we will also cover how you can leverage PowerShell to extend your online backup capabilities.
