  1. Azure Control Panel functionality for snapshots or incremental backup

    I know that data is replicated but that doesn't protect against logical errors, accidental removal by admin or hacker screwing up the data.

    So I really would like to see this done natively from Azure instead of building my own backup systems like these:

    Thank you for your feedback. We view this ask as a set of related features.

    Soft delete for blobs enables you to save and recover your data where blobs or blob snapshots are deleted. It does not protect against container or account deletion. This feature is currently generally available. You can see the announcement here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/soft-delete-for-azure-storage-blobs-ga/ and the full documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/storage-blob-soft-delete

    Object versioning will also offer object-level protection, and will offer a few incremental improvements to soft delete. Specifically, it will make recovery of deleted data easier. This feature is planned for the coming year.

    Container soft delete will protect against container-level deletion and modification. This feature is planned for the coming year as well.

    Native support for blob backup will protect against account-level deletion and modification, and is currently on our backlog.

    We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your…

  2. Make it possible to send Storage Analytics ($logs) to Log analytics

    Currently Storage accounts can generate detailed logs which are stored under $logs in the storage account. But it is not possible to link this to Log Analytics. This functionality would enable monitoring data access, which is sometimes a regulatory requirement.

    This integration work is started. Log Analytics will be one of export options in diagnostic setting. It’s estimated to have public preview by Nov CY2019. Before this built-in connection is offered, you can refer https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/query-azure-storage-analytics-logs-in-azure-log-analytics/ to build short term solution to export logs to Log Analytics.

    For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at azurestoragefeedback@microsoft.com.
