Now available – Windows Server system state backup to Azure
The general availability (GA) of Windows Server system state backup to Azure means you can protect Windows File Servers, Active Directory, and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) web servers hosted on Windows Server 2016 all the way back to Windows Server 2008 R2. Backing up your Windows Server system state to Azure gives you a very simple, secure, and cost-effective way to protect Windows Servers. It also enables the recovery of dynamic OS and application configurations from Azure in the event of an IT disaster.
