Azure – You can now use agentless crash consistent backup (preview)

Agentless multi-disk crash consistent backups for Azure VM backup allows taking VM backups without installing additional software like the VM agent or snapshot extension in your VM.

If the workload running on the virtual machine is performance sensitive and can recover from crash consistent backups, this feature can help reduce the quiesce time during backup.

It is also possible to use this feature if the operating system is not supported for application or file-system consistent backup.

To enable this feature you need to use an Enhanced backup policy type. If you already have an Enhanced backup policy, you can edit it to enable the agentless support.

The option to enable the agentless capability is available under the Consistency type
