You need at least DP 9.08

This section provides a brief description of the key Data Protector features that are introduced in the 9.08
Support for object copy of file system data to Microsoft
A new device is introduced to enable object copy to Microsoft Azure object store from Data Protector. This
new device sends data to Cloud (Azure) containers and is created in a similar way as other devices in Data
Protector. To create such a device in the GUI, the Backup to Disk device type with Cloud (Azure) interface is
selected, and the parameters pertaining to account name and access keys are specified.

Hi thetoppy,

As JBasilio pointed out having an updated version of 9.x will be necessary. As of today I would go for A.09.09_116 to have the latest bits. With this version you're able to copy locally created backups (on a File Library, StoreOnce, or other disk device) to an Azure Cloud storage.

If you need direct backup support, this is coming in Data Protector A.10.03 which should be available soon.
