I have the requirement to perform once per month Archival purpose for my two data disks only from Azure VM running CentOS Linux
1x Premium SSD 512 GB SSE with PMK 1x Premium SSD 1 TB SSE with PMK
Here are my requirements:
Move the monthly backup every 1st day of the month into the Archive tier and set the retention period for 7 years.
Delete any data older than 7 years of age from the date of archival.
Currently, the Azure VM is backed up using Azure Backup into Recovery Service Vault, however, the annual price is too much to pay yearly as the data grows but not even touched until 7 years.
Can someone please assist me in the steps and the procedures to achieve the above?
