  1. View time spent on Azure Backup in Azure portal

    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. .

  2. Add azure backup support for SAP ASE (Sybase)

    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.

  3. Configure Notifications for Backup Alerts in Recovery Service Vaults with PowerShell

    When using Recovery Services Vaults to backup VMs in Azure, we can configure Backup Alert notifications using the portal- it would be useful if this could be done with PowerShell as well.

    Use case- we want to turn on email notifications on all our vaults, or update/add an email address.

  4. nearly real time monitoring in log analytics for MSSQL policy scheduled backups

    Currently there is no option to retrieve data in log analytics about scheduled backups in nearly real time.

    All scheduled backups are collected every 6 hours which is useless for proper monitoring.

    Please provide way how to configure recovery services in a way it will push data to log analytics right away as it fires scheduled backup job and update it in reasonable time interval until it finish. Similar as if you trigger it manually with backup now.

    Or expose api / cmdlets to retrieve information about running scheduled jobs. With information like: Start time, end time, current status.

  5. Administrative Management on Soft Delete on Backup

    There are instances where customer would like to purge the previous Backup Data and start afresh but the limitation to trigger new Backup after 14 days do not let them to suffice the requirement. Also, if we want to change the recovery service vault to configure new Backup, it doesn't allow it to configure instantly and hence, it would be highly recommended to provide administrative access on soft delete if it can be disabled to configure new backup and then can be re-enabled.

  6. Provide automatic testing/validation of database backups for Azure Backup for SQL Server in Azure Virtual Machines

    Given this enterprise backup solution, it would be ideal to have a built-in solution for some automatic verification of database backups (like rotating dbcc checks of restored of databases and then removing the restored database and moving on to the next one).

    Extra credit for being able to specify how many concurrent tests that could be done. Extra, extra credit for having a system that might predict how many need to be done concurrently to test the backed up databases on some schedule

  9. Add QoS function to SQL in a VM backup

    During the Azure SQL backup of an VM, disk latency is extremely high and overloads the VM causing applications to fail. Suggested solution to resize the VM or to scatter the backup do not work. Please add a QoS function to the Azure SQL Backup to limit the load during the backup

  10. Backup solution for Ultra disks

    Backup solution for Ultra disks. Ultra disks doesn't currently support integration with Azure Backup or Azure Site Recovery (Windows/Linux - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/linux/disks-enable-ultra-ssd#ga-scope-and-limitations). Until this is supported, Selective Disk Preview is not an option with ultra-disks on the machine even with the concept to exclude those disks. MARS agent to backup files & folders to exclude Ultra disks is not an option for Linux.

  11. Make it easier to delete Recovery Services Vaults used for backup

    If I backup an IaaS VM, I can't delete the vault for 14 days due to the soft-delete feature.

    I can understand the motivation - to avoid accidental deletion.

    However, this is a huge pain point in testing / training scenarios. We need the ability to fully clean up a test / training environment and start over.

  13. Specify alert mail for Recovery Services vault Data deletion

    Currently, when we delete Azure Backup data in Recovery Services vault, the alert Email will be received within the subscription range.
    We want to specify this Email address. Because we can specify alert Email address, Email will not be sent to unrelated accounts on subscription.
    And we can avoid the impact of sending information to accounts that don’t need alert emails due to security issues.

  14. http://aka.ms/MarsUnselectVolume link does not go anywhere

    When selecting items to backup, the dialog box provides a (non-clickable) link to https://aka.ms/MarsUnselectVolume to "learn about the implications of not using Exclusion Settings for removing all items in a volume. This link resolves to a generic Microsoft page.

  17. Allow recovery of just the azure vm operating system disk rather than all vm disks

    We use Azure Recovery Services Vaults.
    Recently one of development server operating systems became corrupted. We restored the azure virtual machine using recovery services but it restored both the OS and data disk. We only needed the OS disk and had to wait 7 hours for the entire recovery to complete.
    It would be faster if we could choose to recover only the azure vm operating system drive.
