Azure Backup Server is a solution integrated in Azure Backup to protect your application specific workloads (AD, Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, …).
The Azure backup Server is a specialized version of System Center DPM, where the tape support has been stripped away and some optimizations added for Azure Backup support and streamlined setup. Unfortunately there are still no monitoring capabilities in both OMS and OpsMgr, but it’s super easy to add them.
As I stated Azure backup is just a stripped down version of DPM, so basically ti can be monitored as a DPM server with the same Management pack, what’s needed is just a little cheating in making OpsMgr believe that Azure backup server is just another DPM.
You can get this cheat here in the MSOMS Management Pack preview
