  1. Design Still Matters for web design

    All the technicalities we mentioned up to now doesn’t mean that good design doesn’t matter. The visual impact still has a powerful effect on your visitors.
    However, a web professional will design not only how your website will look but even how it will be organized because good web design is, in fact, goal oriented.

  3. Randomize backup jobs start time

    When a protection group contains many servers using the same storage, the backup job may apply a significant load to that storage. It would be a great deal if you add an option to randomize the launch time of the backup jobs within a specific range in minutes. The option could be PG-wide or even server-wide.

  6. Azure Backup Deletion - Third-Party MFA

    Currently we leverage a different MFA solution within our enterprise. It is integrated within our ADFS environment and it would be great to leverage our current MFA software for Azure Backup like we do with logging into the Azure portal. Utilizing our MFA product would keep it consistent for our users across the board and retain a familiar experience. Is there a way this can work with Azure Backup in regards to the deletion security or something your team has planned for the future?

    Thanks!

  9. Please update doc with February 2018 changes

    Please update the screen shot for the SQL server to have the newest screens. Clients have mentioned the SQL Server install screen is outdated and I confirmed it.

    Also, please mention that .NET 3.5 is a pre-requisite.

  10. Backup causes high I/O

    I have seen on two 2012r2 file servers in separate sites with different hardware and different storage hardware that while a DFSR sync (with a large qty of files) is occurring and Azure backup is running the OS will report delayed write warnings and cause the volume to 'appear' offline where it cannot be accessed either by the local server or by end-users trying to access shares.

    Is there a way to safely lower the priority of the backup job, or other method to try to prevent such a thing from happening?

  12. Involving Azure backup data uploaded by DPM to backup report using Power BI.

    We have several on-premise DPM servers where the online backup is activated therefore the backup data is uploaded to the Azure monthly basis. We are testing Power BI to generate Azure backup report, but unfortunately, the backup reports using PowerBI for Data Protection Manager aren't supported at this time.

  13. How does the instance work?

    I wonder what an instance would be.

    In case, if I back up a file server, I'll need an instance. If I back up another file server, will I need another instance or use it?

    If I subsequently back up a SQL or VM, will I need another instance?

    Awaiting.

  18. Require a Security PIN to Reduce any retention settings.

    Require a Security PIN to reduce any retention ranges. In certain cyber attack scenarios where Ransomware infects a server, a cyber attacker could penetrate the environment, and open the Azure Backup MARS software and edit the retention range down to 7 day minimum. The attacker could then encrypt portions of the network, and initiate backups to overwrite and purge good data. Over holidays such as Christmas, 7 days might not be enough time to realize a breach has occured.
    Currently AzureBackup is a fantastic protection against Ransomware, however we have seen Human hackers enter the network and seek out backup…
