Microsoft Azure customers in the UK can now back up and restore their files from data centres based in this country.

The company has announced that Azure Backup and Site Recovery are now available from its multiple cloud regions in the UK, offering companies and organisations reliable, secure and cost-competitive ways to protect important information.

Both services are crucial for any firm storing information in the cloud. Azure Backup protects data on-premises and online, while Site Recovery allows customers to replicate on-premise physical servers in the cloud – so if their primary servers fail, they automatically switch to a secondary site to keep working.
