Windows Server 2012 Online Backup Service - Part 1

Introduction
The Microsoft Online Backup Service is a cloud based backup solution for Windows Server “2012 RC” which allows files and folders to be backed up and recovered from the cloud in order to provide off-site protection against data loss due to disasters. 

What it mean by the statement is, you can recover the files from any location with the given authorization to the backup portal. It would be a good disaster recovery plan for some of the countries which have challenges to manage the backup infrastructure.

What would be the requirement from Microsoft Online backup service, you would required an good internet bandwidth.

The technology it is base on agent base, which mean you would need it in order for you to perform the backup of the server, it is the same as the native backup. But they are several concern that I would like to mention here too. 
  • If you would like to use this service, you must make sure that you have a good and stable internet connection, if not you will have a problem.
  • As for now it is beta, its not yet launch for production, customer would need to ensure how the data is manage. Especially for European country, they would required know where are those data store and how it was been handle.
  • For company perspective, you might want to plan a classification for it, such as when do you require to use such backup technologies?
  • One more thing, I notice on the backup software it self, it does provide a backup retention, but so far I didn't see how the incremental backup or differential or even full system backup take place. I might to dig more info on this portion.
  • Overall I would said this would be a good option for countries that would have a lot of natural disaster. As once we have this, we have no worry on where our tapes should be reside.
Check out more for more details on the above which will cover more on the configuration. In this articles, I would cover the neccessary software for installation.
