A very quick tour of some of the features in Cloud Services

Keep up with our upcoming features by reading the development blog

Back up Windows Azure SQL Database

SQL Azure backup to Azure

With just a few clicks you're ready to schedule your SQL Azure backup. Just enter the credentials and get going.

Create transactionally consistent backups by simply checking a box. This will automatically create a temporary copy of your SQL Azure Database for the duration of the backup.

Retention policy allows you to keep backups for a number of days and removes them automatically when they get too old.

Back up your Azure blobs, Amazon S3 objects, and Azure files storage

Ensure you always have backups of your Azure blobs, Amazon objects, or Azure files.

Easily backup multiple containers to Azure or Amazon, making sure you always have the latest files available.

If you're using Azure blobs you can also use snapshots to keep changed blobs intact so you can get at them in the event of a failure. You can also use a retention policy to remove old snapshots and control the amount of space you use.

NEW: You can now specify which files to backup using a glob pattern.

NEW: Azure files is now supported as backup source. This can currently only backup to Azure blob storage. As this is a new feature, and we’d love to know what you think. Email us your feedback at: support@cherrysafe.zendesk.com

You can feed this email into your reporting system by changing the destination email at any time.
