  • This article will help you to backup Azure Storage account.

    Backups There are several backup solutions offered for blob storage in case if containers get deleted.more product info can be found here:https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/backup/

    Redundancy: If you are concerned about availability, "The data in your Microsoft Azure storage account is always replicated to ensure durability and high availability. Replication copies your data, either within the same data center, or to a second data center, depending on which replication option you choose." , there are several replication options:

    Locally redundant storage (LRS)

    Zone-redundant storage (ZRS)

    Geo-redundant storage (GRS)

    Read-access geo-redundant storage (RA-GRS)

    Managing Access: Finally, managing access to your storage account would be the best way to secure and ensure you'll avoid any loss on your data. You can provide read access only if you don't want anyone to delete files,folders etc.. through the use of SAS: Shared Access Signatures, allows you to create policies and provide access based on Read, Write, List, Delete, etc..

    Azure Blobs supports snapshots: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/storage-blob-snapshots

    Azure Files is integrated with Azure Backup, if that’s an alternative for you: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-afs Today Azure Backup just keeps daily snapshots for up to 180 days. In the coming weeks Azure Backup is adding the ability to take weekly, monthly, and yearly schedules snapshots as well as long as the retention policies keep a maximum of 200.

    Azure Files provides snapshots and the ability to mount and browse snapshots for free, but no automated way to schedule snapshots or do restore. Azure Backup does a lot of extra stuff in restore to ensure speed and reliability. Especially for Azure File Sync.
