Azure Backup now backs up your Client OS’ as well

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,
