Customers do not have many options for backing up Microsoft Azure despite its increasing prominence. As Azure has closed the gap with cloud and infrastructure-as-a-service providers, more companies find themselves needing adequate protection of their Azure backup workloads.
The backup option that is offered by Microsoft for Azure creates additional offerings for the IT team to manage, is limited in what it will backup, and does not integrate into the rest of the environment in a seamless way for the backup administration team. This is in opposition to many companies looking to how consolidation across the enterprise reduces their risks and costs.
Compass® can help.
As an enterprise-scale software-as-a-service backup platform, Compass offers customers flexibility across many workloads including mature support for Microsoft Azure. Compass delivers backup and data protection through analytics-automated software, on-prem or in public or private cloud, all from a single management dashboard.
“Regardless of the public cloud in which Cobalt Iron Compass finds itself, it excels at delivering backup and recovery. Organizations may deploy Compass in multiple ways in Azure and still access all its features.”
