ExpressRoute and Azure Backup
Azure ExpressRoute enables me to send large amounts of data to the Azure datacenter over a private, secure, reliable and low-latency circuit. I want the ability to send my backup data over an ExpressRoute circuit
You can use MS peering and public peering (for old ER circuits) to back up your data:
With Microsoft peering, please select the following services/regions and relevant community values:
Azure Active Directory (12076:5060)
Microsoft Azure Region (according to the location of your Recovery Services vault)
Azure Storage (according to the location of your Recovery Services vault)
For more details, see the ExpressRoute routing requirements.
With public peering: Ensure access to the following domains/addresses:

Darryl and Hans are absolutely right, you can use ExpressRoute (Public Peering) for ASR and Azure Backups. We've been using this feature for at least a year now.

This is already supported. Use Public peering and all traffic to public endpoints of Microsoft Azure will go through Express Route.

ASR can use ExpressRoute, so it would be a great addition to also have backup do this.
You should try using "Cloudbacko Pro" for taking backup as with backup it helps in restoring also, I am basically using using their MS SQL Software for taking backup. Thus if you want to know more about this software. Just Google: Cloudbacko Software or visit: http://www.cloudbacko.com/sql-backup.jsp

Isn't this already possible? If I'm not mistaken we are already using this.
