Azure Blob Storage

You can use the Commvault software to back up and restore Azure Blob Storage.


Backups You Can Perform

  • Full backups

  • Incremental backups

  • Synthetic full backups

Data You Can Back Up

With full and incremental backups, you can back up the following data at the object level:

  • Metadata of the object

  • Tags of the object


After a full backup, if the tag or the metadata of an object is modified, but the data has not changed, then the next incremental backup does not include that object. Incremental backups include only objects whose data has changed.

Data You Cannot Back Up

  • Files and folders without a name.

  • Files and folders that contain a forward slash ("/") in their names.

  • Archive tier data in the in the Azure Storage access tier.

    You can view the archiver tier objects in the failed items list of the backup job.

  • The original location (in place)

  • To a different Azure Blob Storage account, and to the following cloud storages (out-of-place):

    • Amazon S3

    • Azure Files

    • Google Cloud

    • IBM cloud

    • Azure Data Lake Gen2

Data You Can Restore
