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

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.
