View Event: Azure SQL DB Backups – Isn’t Microsoft taking care of that?

Most people think you no longer have to care about backups once you move to the cloud. You still need to confirm that you do not violate your company policy and regulatory requirements because of the default values. In this session, we will cover why and how you can manage backups in Azure.

If you need to know the answers to the below questions, this session will help you answer them. What are the default backup settings for Azure SQL Database? What is the maximum you can set for point-in-time backup retention, and what happens if you need to retain the backup for years due to regulatory requirements? What kind of redundancy do you have for backup files, what restore capabilities do you have, and how do you monitor backup costs? How to test your restore to ensure you have a good backup, since “Your backup is as good as your restore.”

I will answer all these questions in this session, and more with a live demo setting up retention, restoring cross region from Geo-Redundant backup, and query backup consumption with calculating cost.
