The Festive Tech Calendar, is a great community initiative, setup by Gregor Suttie (aka Azure Greg) and Richard Hooper (aka Pixel Robots). It’s all about sharing knowledge and helping people to learn new things and improve their skillset throughout the festive month of December 2020. Each day of December, 3 contributions, ranging from video contributions and blog posts to live streams and hand-on-labs, will be shared by community people from all over the world.
This is really what community is all about, sharing knowledge and helping people learning new things and improving their skillset. This is truly by the communities, for the communities.
You can also keep an eye on Twitter for the hashtags #festivetechcalendar and #CloudFamily to stay up to date.
Backup is one of the most important things that an IT Administrator needs to take care of, especially when you run your workloads in the Cloud. With Azure Backup you can back up your critical business data in Azure to protect it from corruption, accidental deletion and ransomware.
In my video contribution for the Festive Tech Calendar, I explain why it is important to get and to keep in control of your Azure Backup implementation. I will not only look into the governance and security part. But also how you can perform real-time monitor your Azure Backup workloads using the Azure Portal, Azure Monitor and Azure Backup Explorer. Off course like most of you will know, there is no monitoring without alerting. So I will also take a deeper look at all alerting capabilities. And at the end of the video, I will look into how you can configure reporting and explain how it can rhelp you to get the right insights in your backups and this across your entire backup estate.
I have already written a few blog posts about Azure Backup, which you can reach via the links below:
