Microsoft today announced that they have released the Windows Azure Online Backup Integration Module for Windows Server 2012 Essentials.
Windows Azure Online Backup is a cloud-based backup solution that enables your server data to be backed up to and recovered from an off-premises datacenter (also known as the cloud). To reduce storage and bandwidth utilization, Windows Azure Online Backup performs block-level incremental backup and to increase security, the data is compressed and encrypted before leaving your server.
Here's what they had to say:
"This module allows you to more easily configure and manage Windows Azure Online Backup from within the familiar Windows Server 2012 Essentials Dashboard to provide a seamless backup and restore experience. The integration module complements your traditional local server backup (where the data is backed up to an on-premises external drive) by using the Windows Azure service to protect critical data on the server in the cloud."
