Easy question, but the way it is formulated it seems backups are entirely not possible (the MSDN page gives the same expression) and that your data is not safe. Azure databases are replicated to different servers to deal with disaster recovery. It doesn't protect you from accidental data loss though (for example issuing DROP TABLE by accident).

There are alternatives:

Nice question.
There are more than 20 features that are not supported.
I like SQL Azure.
Thanks,

It really depends on how broadly you define "backup". Yes, normal SQL backups aren't supported, but you can backup your database, to give some protection against the data loss/corruption mentioned by Koen. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/jj650016.aspx

Interesting question, thanks.
Had to read up on this, as I am not too familiar with SQL Azure.

Don't think this question is all that great. There is a backup and restore strategy with Azure.

Thumbs down on this QOTD.

+1. I've tinkered with it, but nothing serious. Good question though; got me to do some research and learn something today.



Everything is awesome!
