Ability to Backup and Restore SQL with Azure Backup, without DPM/Backup Server is going to be a useful feature.
When servers are in Multiple locations, it is over killing and complexing to have multiple Azure Backup servers for only the purpose of SQL backups.
If Azure Backup Agent can do SQL along with File/Folder it would be great. Or else the backup solution doesn't look flexible
