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

Note: 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.


Destinations You Can Restore To

  • 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

    • Ali Cloud

    • IBM cloud

    • Azure Data Lake Gen2

  • Disk

Data You Can Restore

  • Data, along with the metadata

    Note: You cannot restore metadata to a different cloud storage system.
