Hi all, is there a way to copy Azure VM backups or back up the VMs to a S3 provider like Backblaze? Also curious if it is possible to backup Exchange Online mailboxes to a S3 provider without 3rd party software? Thanks!

    Hello @Gilfoyle Thank you for posting your question on the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to help!

    Yes, it is possible to copy Azure VM backups to a S3 provider like Backblaze. One way to achieve this is by using Azure Blob Storage as an intermediary. You can copy the VM backups from Azure Backup to Azure Blob Storage, and then use a tool like AzCopy or a third-party tool like CloudBerry Backup to copy the backups from Azure Blob Storage to Backblaze.

    Here are the high-level steps to copy Azure VM backups to Backblaze:

    1. Set up Azure Backup to back up your VMs to Azure Backup.
    2. Set up an Azure Blob Storage account to use as an intermediary.
    3. Configure Azure Backup to use Azure Blob Storage as the backup target.
    4. Use a tool like AzCopy or CloudBerry Backup to copy the backups from Azure Blob Storage to Backblaze.

    Note that you will need to have the necessary permissions and credentials to access both Azure Backup and Backblaze in order to perform these steps.

    Alternatively, you can also use a third-party backup solution that supports both Azure VMs and Backblaze, such as Veeam Backup & Replication. This can simplify the backup and restore process and provide additional features such as compression, deduplication, and encryption.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions or if there is anything else I can assist you with.
