About the Cloud Backup Provider API

A cloud backup provider is a third-party provider of networked online storage services. Windows Server Backup provides for integration of cloud backup provider status within the Windows Server Backup MMC snap-in.

For information about MMC, see Microsoft Management Console 3.0.

The cloud backup provider snap-in is a child snap-in under the Windows Server Backup parent snap-in. The cloud backup provider snap-in should be an extensible snap-in and must register itself with Windows Server Backup as described in Cloud Backup Provider API Registry Keys.
