This article explains how you can define a backup job in Backup4all that will back-up your data from Microsoft Azure.
The Azure cloud platform has more than 200 products and cloud services designed to help you bring new solutions to life - to solve today’s challenges and create the future. Build, run, and manage applications across multiple clouds, on-premises, and at the edge, with the tools and frameworks of your choice.
Azure is a Microsoft service and thus a very reliable destination for your cloud backups. You can easily configure Backup4all to back-up your data to Microsoft Azure but just as well you can configure it to back-up your data from Azure (i.e. in case you'd like to duplicate that onto another cloud service).
