Blob storage - Add a Backup & Restore feature
Regarding the blob, geo-replication is very cool for the HA side, but it is not a backup.
It would be nice to be able to backup a blob storage on another blob storage, to cover against an accidental deletion of the storage account via the portal, or from the code by an error of a programmer by the use SDK (call API) that does not control recursion (and delete calls).
here is a use case:
the recommendation to store Terraform tfstate is on blob storage to use the state lock. This file is critical for the resource deployment and being able to backup this file in prod is mandatory. ( Amazon support this feature with versionning in S3 bucket )
It is so amazing the Microsoft engineers/developers seem to have no awareness of managing enterprise data thinking replication is their idea of backup
I fully agree. REplication is not backup. If something happens to the data, then you are just replicating the bad data and if not caught it will be too late and all replicas are bad.
Please make azure backup for storage account blobs.
Request to add a feature to a future release of Azure backup to allow backup of Storage Accounts, Blob Storage to allow granular protection as seen with a file system from a VM.
Add option to backup storage account with all containers inside.
And the option to restore directly to storage account to save time for critical blobs
