Another quick headsup hoping to have more time in the near future, but coding and writing posts don’t go well together when days are still based on 24 hours.
So, as many of you know yesterday Backup for Azure VM created with the ARM model went GA.
This is great news and I strongly encourage to mode all your vaults to the new model, the second good news is you can protect SM Azure VM with the new Recovery Services vaults. This way you can start to consolidate vaults (if performance allow) and leverage the RBAC and advanced features of the new portal.
But backup without a proper monitor (and proper recovery procedures testing) are worthless. So I rushed to develop a monitoring solution for #SCOM, it monitors for:
- recovery point age
- last backup job status
- jobs failure rate
