In this lab, you learn about leveraging Azure storage with SQL Server. We will cover hosting data files directly from Azure Storage, backup to URL and snapshot backups.
In this exercise, you will create a storage account for use with the SQL Server Backup to URL feature. You will execute a backup and a restore from Azure Storage. You will then backup and restore a database using Azure Snapshot Backups.
In the next exercise, you will use File-Snapshots to backup a SQL Server database. You will then restore a database to a previous point in time using File-Snapshot Backups.
