DPM Protection to AWS VTLs or Azure Online Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We are planning to remove old tape libraries that are currently storing backup of file server and replace it with some cloud based storage.

    There are options like AWS VTL(Virtual Tape Library) or Azure VTL or DPM online backup to Microsoft Azure storage. Can someone please assist which one would be the best & reliable option considering the cost also ?

  • From this article:

    For virtual machines, the size of the allocated disk determines the data size; while for files and folders, the size of the files and folders configured for backup determine the data size. SQL Server backups are calculated based on the size of the databases they use. The backups can be done for locally redundant storage (LRS) or geo-redundant storage (GRS) using Block Blob storage.

    Backup pricing starts at $5 for each instance of 50GB or less, while instances larger than 50GB, but less than 500GB, cost $10 each. Instances over 500GB cost $10 for each 500GB increment.

    Storage pricing starts at $0.024 per GB for the first TB of data per month, while the next 49 TB of storage are priced at $0.0236 per GB per month. The next 50TB to 500TB of storage costs $0.0232 per month per GB, while the next 500TB to 1,000TB costs $0.0228 per GB per month. 1,000TB to 5,000TB of storage is $0.0224 per GB per month. For rates above 5,000TB per month of storage, users should contact Microsoft directly for quotes.

    For the best answer you should contact the Microsoft Azure billing support:
