Why use Ahsay when I can directly upload data to Azure Cloud Storage?

Backup VMs, O365, and more

Microsoft Azure just provides you with storage space and a simple web interface so that you can manually upload data. However, how are you going to copy the data of Office 365, VMware / Hyper-V guest virtual machines, Microsoft Exchange Database, Microsoft SQL Database to there correctly and as frequent as you want? Ahsay Backup Software can help you achieve these.

Automatic, scheduled, versioning, reporting

Moreover, Ahsay's client agents automate everything. Once set up, backup will be run automatically based on preset schedules. It also has many built-in features that handle the scheduling, retention and versioning, security, speed optimization, incremental backup, data integrity, reporting, etc.

Secure encryption

Secondly, Ahsay's client agents (AhsayOBM and AhsayACB) can encrypt all the data on user's local machine before sending to Microsoft Azure with 256-bit truly randomized encrypting key. Thus, no easily hackable key such as "123", "abc", etc. will be used. With such encryption methodology, no one, not even the people from Microsoft, is able to know what the user has backed up.

Restorability ensured

Our solution has built in comprehensive data integrity validation mechanism to ensure the restorability of your backup data.


All these are the values that Ahsay Backup Software provides to you that you can't get from using Azure alone. Check out all the features we have from here.

Why Microsoft Azure

It is scalable. Its price is based on your actual usage. Locally Redundant Storage (Hot) storage cost starts at US$0.0184 per GB only. Since you will normally use incremental backup, the request and data transfer costs for backup will only be around 20 - 80% of the storage cost. On the contrary, if you set up the whole thing of offsite backup by yourself, the total cost could be much higher. Its service level is covered by SLA. It is trustworthy with big customers. It gives you peace of mind. Check out their website for more benefits.
