Backup Dynamics GP to Azure Blob Storage

As a follow up to my last blog post Case Study: Dynamics GP on Microsoft Azure I want to let you know about an exciting new update to Dynamics GP 2013 R2 that allows for GP to be easily backed up to Azure Blob Storage!  Whether you are offering Dynamics GP as an RDS solution running on an Azure VM, or running Dynamics GP outside of Azure, you can seamlessly configure GP to backup to (and restore from) Azure blob storage. 

For more details, click here.

As we’ve stated in several previous blog posts, our guidance for partners is to focus on providing packaged solutions on top of Azure, resulting in a finished, repeatable offering that will delight your customers.  Here’s a recap of what you can offer with Dynamics GP on Azure:

  • Dynamics GP running on an Azure VM
  • Users RDS into an Azure VM for access to GP (RDS can be licensed through a SPLA RDS SAL or RDS CAL w/ SA)
  • GP database is backed up to an Azure Blob Storage account

This is a great example of a partner offered packaged solution running on Azure and a great opportunity for existing GP partners looking to transition their business to the cloud.  What are you waiting for!!!

  • Hello everyone...

    I am Nicole Morgan by name, currently living in California, USA. I am a widow at the moment with two kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $87,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr Jad Harb. He doesn't know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: jadloandevelopers@yahoo.com
