Migrate Management Tool Resources

This section contains information that you may find helpful as you migrate Azure management tool resources across Azure regions.


Azure Backup is the Azure-based service used to back up (or protect) and restore data in Azure. The service can protect native Azure resources like VMs as well non-Azure resources from hybrid environments including workloads running on on-premises servers. All backups are stored in Recovery Services Vaults in Azure. If customers need to migrate between Azure regions, they should first create a new Recovery Services Vault in the target region that can protect resources in the new region. To migrate Azure resources protected by Azure Backup, customers will first need to stop protection on the resources and retain the existing data (Instructions). Then the resources can then be migrated to the target region and protection can be enabled in the newly created recovery vault. For non-Azure resources, customers would follow the same process but don't need to migrate resources. The existing backup data in the source region will still be accessible to support recovery scenarios.

For customers looking to unify their backups, Azure Backup is working to provide a tool to enable moving existing data to the target region while ensuring existing recovery points are still accessible by customers. The tool is expected to be available in CY20H1.
