ability to backup file service storage with automatic retentions
ability to backup file service storage with automatic retentions directly from the backup vault
Azure Backup and backup vault for Azure Files is in the backlog, however we do not have specific timelines to share yet.
Really important feature. Without a data protection solution, this service cannot be used for business-critical application data.
Either build it in the MABS (Microsoft Azure Backup Server) or directly in Recovery Services Vault/Azure Backup.
Companies typically take back-up's to be able to restore in case of disaster OR to have Point-In-Time recovery possibilities. As far as I can experience today the Azure Back-Up agent is not compatible with Azure Files.
