SMB Server with Backup on Cloud

Azure Virtual Machines are the main compute power resource that represents the Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service model. Azure Virtual machine is one of several types of on-demand, scalable computing resources that Azure offers. Typically, you choose a VM when you need more control over the computing environment than the other choices offer.

In this solution we combine the Azure SMB server with the Cloud backup to back up (or protect) and restore your VM in the Microsoft cloud.
