Performing Azure SQL Backup

In this article

    To produce backups of Azure SQL databases, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure runs backup policies. A backup policy is a collection of settings that define the way backup operations are performed: what data to back up, where backups must be stored, when the backup process must start and so on.

    One backup policy can be used to process multiple Azure SQL databases within different regions, but you can back up each Azure SQL database with one backup policy at a time. If an Azure SQL database is added to more than one backup policy, it will be processed only by a backup policy that has the highest priority. Other backup policies will skip this Azure SQL database from processing. For information on how to set a priority for a backup policy, see Setting Backup Policy Priority.

    To schedule data protection tasks to run automatically, create backup policies. For each protected Azure SQL database, you can also create a backup manually when needed.
