During my recent Hands on Lab events, we spent time setting up Azure Backup. During these events, only Server OS’ (Server 2008 R2 + SP1 and above) were supported. The common question during these events was “Can I backup my Client OS’ with Azure Backup?”. During the events, the answer was no, but now the answer is yes for 64-bit versions of Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8 & Windows 8.1. Check out this recent post from Giridhar Mosay, our Program Manager for Cloud + Enterprise. The only downside to this new capability is that it is only supported on 64-bit versions of the Client OS.
Until next time,
