As Sybase license are (almost) free for HANA customers...some will use Sybase for other SAP workloads ;-)
Backing up the whole VM and using SAP tools to do so currently is tedious and manual. How nice it would be if you could have azure backup take care of that and have the SAP ASE backup artefacts managable in azure and speed up the restore. Our Current DB sizes are 50GB - 500GBs.
Enabling a scenario like this would help in getting SAP customers onboarded to azure.45 votes
If scale sets are used by in Azure IAAS, it should be supported to back up its instances or single instance at least through Azure Backup service in same or other regions in a recovery vault.45 votes
There are instances whereby we want a complete/selective deletion of backup data without the 14 days retention policy. Currently, when I choose to backup a particular folder on my server using the MARS agent, and decide that I want a complete wipe of that data from Azure, I have to stop the backup policy and wait for 14 days for total deletion. In-between these 14 days, I'm stuck without an option to backup to Azure if I require a clean slate.43 votes
We can seed initial backup to Azure backup Vault using the import service but we cannot seed a large restore using the Export service. Restoring a large volume of data could take several days or even weeks!43 votes
We can check from Azure Portal whether Azure Backup is completed.
However, we cannot see how far it is going at this time.
Our customers want us to implement visualization of the percentage currently being achieved by Azure Portal.39 votes
Now view time spent on Azure Backup in Azure portal
Checking the status of Azure backup using Azure PowerShell can be used to schedule the time of Buckup subtask, but it is inconvenient so please display the time taken for Buckup and its subtask from Azure portal. .38 votes
How to know the individual storage usage of a VM or server in a Vault?36 votes
MARS Agent backup time is delayed There are many problems. Many of the causes are processing time before data transfer. I think This can be a take snapshot, checksum process, and queue time. If the performance before data transfer improves, I think that one of the problems of delay in backup time will be solved.36 votes
I want to on-premises backup SQL DBs to Azure and test the sanity of the backup point by restoring it to an Azure IaaS VM which has SQL server installed in it36 votes
I want to be able to exclude certain folders from backups by default and I want to be able to use wildcards to do it. Right now this is a nightmarish thing to do and the documentation is very scarce.
Having to manually configure these or to have scripts that try to continuously update the backup schedules on machines is madness.35 votes
If a customer wants to backup or restore the contents of a key vault, the customer is forced to export/import keys, secrets and certificates one by one.
There should be an Azure CLI command to export a Key Vault in its entirety, and the same with import, something like:
az keyvault backup --file <FileName> --vault-name <VaultName>
az keyvault restore --file <FileName> --vault-name <VaultName>34 votes
From the portal.azure.com web interface we can see the type of consistency for a backup. We would like to have visibility into this information through the PowerBI reports and powershell commands.33 votes
I'd like the option to set more than three backups per day on Azure Backup.33 votes
If you lock a resource group containing VMs as ReadOnly, VMs in that resource group will fail to backup because they are locked.
Please provide an option to bypass ReadOnly locks for recovery services backup jobs.33 votes
The daily limitation of Azure Virtual Machine backups is very restrictive. It makes it difficult to meet any reasonable RPO from a backup strategy.
Even if our RPO is 24 hours, that means we have to have 100% backup success in order to maintain SLA.
Being able to back up more frequently would allow better RPO or greater achievement of SLA with managed risk of failed backups.
I really want to avoid using the in-VM agent to complete this task as it doesn't scale which is the whole point of using Azure Backup!32 votes

[Azure Backup] Want to specify Backup Schedule Policy of Azure VM Backup at "local time" using Azure PowerShell
At present, backup schedule of backup policy using Azure PowerShell, we need to specify the "time", "time zone" in UTC.
Therefore, please add the function to be able to specify the "local time" (UTC + N) using Azure PowerShell.29 votes
Allow file-level restores of Encrypted Azure VMs without MARS29 votes
Currently, encrypted VMs are not eligible for "Replace Disk" as described in the following public information.
Title: Restore Azure VMs
Replace existing is supported for unmanaged managed VMs. It is not supported for unmanaged disks, generalized VMs, or for VMs created using custom images.
From the security point of view as well, it is possible that the number of encrypted VMs will increase in the future, so there is a need for an easier recovery method.
Currently, encrypted VMs can only be restored from "disk restores". We should also implement VM restoration with "disk replacement" of encrypted VMs.28 votes
