In this article I will show you how I enable Microsoft Azure Recovery Services and backup my Nano Server Virtual Machine and recover It.
To start with Recovery Services, I need to Create a new Storage Vault from the Recovery Services vaults page and click on Add
Fill In the details
Once done click on it
I select Azure Virtual Machine
Next I create a Backup policy
Next I select Nano Server VM which I want to backup
Once done, I can see all the available backup options
From the Backup Jobs I can see my backup job for my Nano server
Next I’ll run a manual without using the schedule I configured before using the Backup Now button
As you can see backup Is running
By going to backup jobs I can see my Backup running
Next I’ll restore my Nano Server VM by going to backup Items and clicking on the VM
Click on the backup set
Select the storage account and click OK
I can also monitor the restore job
As you can see the restore job Is completed
As you can see Microsoft Azure Recovery services very handy and powerful.
The only thing I think you should be aware Is that the pricing Is based on storage used So you will need to monitor which VM you are monitoring and their size.
