This is one step you can take to have a consistent time management policy for your systems.I think Group Policy is the best way to centrally manage this setting; unfortunately, Group Policy doesn't have a built-in value to configure the time zone setting on a Windows Server.For this scenario I have added a new keyword in the @Databases parameter. Database Backup @Databases = 'USER_DATABASES, -AVAILABILITY_GROUP_DATABASES', @Directory = 'C:\Backup', @Backup Type = 'FULL' It works the same way in Database Backup, Database Integrity Check, and Index Optimize.You can now use the SQL Server Maintenance Solution to back up to Azure Blob Storage. Database Backup @Databases = 'USER_DATABASES', @URL = 'https://core.windows.net/mycontainer', @Credential = 'mycredential', @Backup Type = 'FULL', @Compress = 'Y', @Verify = 'Y' You can also encrypt the backups. Database Backup @Databases = 'USER_DATABASES', @URL = 'https://core.windows.net/mycontainer', @Credential = 'My Credential', @Backup Type = 'FULL', @Compress = 'Y', @Encrypt = 'Y', @Encryption Algorithm = 'AES_256', @Server Certificate = 'My Certificate', @Verify = 'Y' You can mirrored the backup.There are lots of freeware programs out there that can help you sync two folders, but very few of them do a good job of syncing the folders in real time.
Database Backup @Availability Groups = 'ALL_AVAILABILITY_GROUPS, -AG1', @Directory = 'C:\Backup', @Backup Type = 'FULL' Now what if you want to select all user databases that are not in availability groups?
