    I am looking into Azure Backup to backup my on-prem servers. Three servers have 3 volumes that have two 5TB volumes and one ten TB volume. In addition, i have three servers with 20+TB across volumes. In total i have about 100TB and growing.

    The solution i have right now cannot handle this large volume of data. I am thinking that Azure backup will run into the same issues (some issues include slow transfer rates, full backups being created for no apparent reason and full backups failing after running for 2+ weeks). Does anyone work with large server volumes like these? I am planning to use azcopy for some of the data to archive it so it doesn’t all need to be backed up, but even after that i’m still looking at an enormous amount of data and no efficient way to back it up.

It can backup entire on-premises machines as well as specific files and folders running either in-house or in Azure VMs.


    Azure Backup is a reliable and cost-effective cloud backup solution. The Azure Backup Service offers various options for backing up on-premises and cloud-based workloads to Azure storage. I had some issues with migrated servers and took help from an azure cloud consulting company – With Azure backup solutions, you can protect your data and applications to avoid costly business interruptions.
