Backup Azure PaaS resources
Backup any Azure PaaS resource using Azure Backup. Please comment with resources you are looking backup support for.
Update: We have initiated the work on enabling backup for blob storage and is underway, ETA: End of Q3CY20.

Considered different options to implement Azure Table backup (Scripting, Azure Data Factory ...). They all work, but none of them are satisfactory, particularly from an operational point of view. Would like to cover both protection against data loss and logical corruption (e.g. accidental deletion). Using Azure Backup would be the ideal solution.

We have a use case for backing up Azure tables at the moment, but this topic has been under review for +2 years. How realistic is it that we see this feature in 2017?

Seconded, especially Azure File storage. At the moment a VM needs to be spun up (or 2 to be safe), and a batch file using AZCOPY to take a frequent copy, then a backup with Azure Backup. It's not exactly the most efficient use of resources and storage.
Surely this has been partially done using the azure storage API to provide VM backups? How else does it get the vhd blobs?

Yes, please add backup support, with quantity days like Sql Azure.
it' s important if you have an error on disk or delete by user.
This you can do from "Cloudbacko Pro" software because with "Cloudbacko Pro" you can take Multi-destination concurrent backup for Microsoft SQL Server also. Leaving a link below just check: http://www.cloudbacko.com/sql-backup.jsp

We're in the process of offering Azure File Services for our end user as this would allow them to distribute files all over the world in a controlled, reliable manner.
In order to provide this as a service we need to be able to provide more protection than the DR-capabilities built into Azure, for example if a user by mistake deletes a file or folder.
I'm thinking that there'd be a backup operator role in the RBAC that we can assign to the resource group containing the Azure File Service. Users with this role can through the Azure Backup UI configure backup and restore policies for objects in the Azure File Service and also backup and restore the actual objects. No direct access to the objects is given through this role though.

Please support backups with revision history of blob storage.
