  • Hi,

    A client is looking for Azure SQL Server for Virtual machines back-up which should be compressed & encrypted.

    Which service in Azure should be suggested here?

  • Hi Vikas

    This would be bit tricky.

    You can configure your VM back using Azure Backup services but that might not give you an option to encrypt.

    See here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/documentation/articles/backup-azure-vms/

    Alternatively, you can keep your VM backup on Storage and use encryption extension but you would have to figure out how you would backup VM programatically.
