I think every IT Pro I’ve ever met hates tape backups … but having an
offsite component in your backup strategy is absolutely necessary for
effective disaster recovery. One of the new features provided in SQL Server
2012 Service Pack 1 Cumulative Update 2 is the ability to now backup SQL
databases and logs to Windows Azure cloud storage using native SQL Server
Backup via both Transact-SQL (T-SQL) and SQL Server Management Objects (SMO).
Backup to cloud storage is a natural fit for disaster recovery, as our
backups are instantly located offsite when completed. And, the
