Azure Backup for Windows Client Operating Systems

Microsoft Azure Backup provides a simple and reliable cloud based folder and file backup solution.  The initial releases of Azure Backup supported Windows Server operating systems but with the newest update the Windows client operating systems are now supported.  Users of  Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 PCs can now use the simple Azure Backup agent to protect their important files.  

Microsoft Azure Backup provides the first 5GB of backup for free and each additional GB is only $0.20 per month (retail pricing).    Microsoft Azure Backup includes all of the features you would expect from a file backup solution, including:

  • 99.9% availability guaranteed
  • Efficient incremental backups
  • Secure, encrypted data at rest
  • Data encryption in-transit
  • Geo-replicated backup store
