Azure Backup Center

Most enterprises use multiple Azure Backup valets to manage different workload types. For example, to backup SQL Servers, it may use a separate Backup vault apart from the web app workload backup vault. There may be multiple Backup vaults in different subscriptions as well. So it’s tedious to manage those from individual portals. So Azure Backup Center comes to the rescue by providing a consolidated view of all the backups in your cloud environment.
