For those of you struggling with the cost and strategy of doing backups of your on-premise server data, Windows Azure Online Backup (preview) can help.   It permits backing up of server data to the Cloud to help prevent against data loss.  It runs as a cloud-based backup process and gives Admins a low-cost way to physically remote backup and recover their server data. Hopefully this is just another piece in the puzzle of the hybrid issues that most companies had to consider in the reality of their move to the Cloud.
