Welcome to the Azure Government Blog


Welcome to the Azure Government Blog.  With the release of Azure Government last year we continue to hear amazing success stories of how Azure Government is helping Agencies be more agile with their development and testing capabilities, how police are aggressively leveraging the environment to help usher in a new way of policing and we are excited by our ability to continue to deliver innovation and scale to the US Public Sector market. 

Azure Government is a physically isolated instance of Azure, providing US Public Sector agencies enormous computing power that can meet many needs, all while being managed and maintained by screened US Personnel and meeting rigorous security and compliance demands such as CJIS.  Given that Azure Government is physically isolated, while the environment may look and feel just like the Azure you have come to love, there are some differences.  We hope to use this blog as an venue to highlight the specific Azure Government resources and techniques and also discuss solutions that are pertinent to US Public Sector agencies.

For the first post we believed it would be good to give a synopsis of the resources that are currently available.

We are looking forward to increasing the dialogue with our users and customers and hope this blog will serve as a valuable resource.  As we move forward, please leave us comments and join the conversation as we look forward to providing more information.

    Do you know when Azure Backup will be available in Azure Government?  In the mean time do you have any recommendations for performing Windows Server data backups in the Azure Government environment?

      @sphunt – Sorry for delay in notification, but Azure Backup is available: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-government-adds-azure-backup/

    Thanks for the feedback. In regards to Azure Backup, this is a service important to us as well and something we are working on to bring into Azure Government. Stay tuned for updates.

    In regards to alternatives – you could manually run Windows Server Backup and then use AzCopy to upload the resulting file to Azure Government Blob Storage.
