To protect your Azure virtual machines, you must first connect your Azure Tenant to Druva and onboard your Azure subscriptions to the Druva ecosystem. As a part of the onboarding process, you must assign an administration group and also specify a preferred Druva storage where you want to backup your data. By default, a Default Druva Storage will be assigned to back up data from all Azure regions. However, you can assign more specific region-wise storage. For more information, see Map storage

With Druva’s Azure data protection, the onboarding process has never been easier! Follow these three easy steps to onboard a new subscription for the first time, and you are all set:


Step Action

  1. Select or create an administrative group.
