I have set up a linux VM running Ubuntu 16 using resource manager and image from the marketplace. I use only SSE encryption since I do not need extra data drive, and OS manged disk uses SSE encryption by default. I have enebaled every-day back up of the whole VM in Azure.
I would like to ask following questions regarding the VM:
- Is it possible to export a backup copy of the VM from azure? If yes, can the copy be restored outside of the azure using a third-party tool? If yes, how?
- Can the backup copy be restored on different azure account? If yes, how can I provide access to the backup copy to user with the different account? By different account I mean completely different user from other company...
- If there is a sudden outage in the region where the VM is placed, what are my options to keep the VM running and enable users to use it without any notice? Should I use for it Disaster recovery available from VM detail? If yes, does it switch location automatically or there are some actions required once the outage happen?
I read all the docs but still can not find satisfying answers for my questions, so I might be just missing something. Thanks for any information!
