Backup Service: General Availability Release of Windows Azure Backup

With the General Availability of Windows Azure Backup we have made several reliability improvements to ensure you are able to meet your offsite cloud backup needs.  There will be no impact to your backups as Windows Azure Backup moves from preview to General Availability.  You can continue managing cloud backups from familiar backup tools in Windows Server, Windows Server Essentials, or the Data Protection Manager component of Microsoft System Center. We recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of the Windows Azure Backup agent. Please follow the steps in the agent upgrade notification which would be visible in the backup console of your servers
