Back up on-premises applications data to Microsoft Azure

Contributors netapp-soumikd netapp-manishc

Complete a few steps to back up the applications data from ONTAP to Microsoft Azure.

BlueXP supports data lock and ransomware protection. If ONTAP cluster is running on ONTAP 9.12.1 or later and if you have not configured archival storage, you can protect the backups from overwriting, deletion, and ransomware threats.

  1. In BlueXP UI, click Protection > Backup and recovery > Applications.

  2. Click icon to select the action corresponding to the application and click Activate Backup.

  3. In the Assign Policy page, select the policy and click Next.

  4. Add the working environment.

    Configure the cluster management LIF that you want BlueXP to discover. After adding the working environment for one of the applications, it can be reused for all the other applications residing on the same ONTAP cluster.

    1. Select the SVM and click Add Working Environment.

    2. In the Add Working Environment wizard:

      1. Specify the IP address of the cluster management LIF.

      2. Specify the credentials of the ONTAP cluster user.

        BlueXP backup and recovery for applications only support cluster admin.

    3. Click Add Working Environment.

  5. Select Microsoft Azure as the cloud provider.

    1. Specify the Azure subscription ID.

    2. Select the region where you want to create the backups.

    3. Either create a new resource group or use an existing resource group.

    4. Specify the IP space.

    5. Select the archival tier if you have configured archival storage in the policy.

      It is recommended to set the archival tier because this is an one time activity and you will not be allowed to set it up later.

  6. Configure data lock and ransomware protection.

  7. Review the details and click Activate Backup.
