A Quick and Easy Backup Solution for Windows Azure Storage

Windows Azure Storage is getting more popular

Windows Azure Storage is getting more popular and more and more Gladinet customers are using Azure Storage now.

One of the primary use case for Windows Azure Storage is Online Backup. It is pretty cool to have your local documents and folders backup to Windows Azure, inside data centers run by Microsoft, a strong brand name that you can trust with your important data.

This article will walk you through the new Gladinet Cloud Backup 3.0, a simple and yet complete backup solution for your Windows PC, Server and Workstations.


Step 1 – Download and Install Gladinet Cloud Backup


Step 2 – Add Windows Azure as Backup Destination


From the drop down list, choose Windows Azure Blob Storage


You can get the Azure Blob Storage credentials from the Azure web site (windows.azure.com)



Step 3 – Manage Backup Tasks from Management Console


There are two modes of backup. You can use the one that works the best for you.

(1) Mirrored Backup – the local folder will be copied to Azure Storage. Once it is done, the copy on the Azure storage is exactly the same as your local folder’s content.

(2) Snapshot Backup – A snapshot of the local folder will be taken first and then the snapshot will be saved to Azure Storage.

If you need to backup SQL Server and other types of applications that supports Volume Shadow Copy Service, you can use the snapshot backup to get it done.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
