TechDays Sweden 2015

October 29, 2015

First and foremost I would like to thank all of you that attended mine and Niklas presentation.

We had a really good time with some really interesting DevOps discussions before and after our presentation. The video of the presentation has been published and you can watch it on Channel 9 and all the other sessions as well.

Since the presentation screen was blanked out during most of our presentation we have decided to record it again. So stay tuned.

In the meantime you can get/view the PowerPoint slides here


Azure Backup updates

October 5, 2015

We will soon be able to get backup of Microsoft SQL Server, Hyper-V VM, SharePoint Server and Windows Clients in Microsoft Azure Backup without System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM).

I assume that the binaries will be released during or after the Microsoft launch event October 6th 2015

AZbkp1

The Agent isn’t accessible yet but the download links are there with a link to a text file. AZbkp2 Stay tuned for an updated post once the binaries are released.

Update
Marius Sandbu has covered this in an excellent post. New Azure backup “agent”
