SQL Server 2014 time outs while running backups

We have a SQL Server 2014 database running in virtual machine withing Azure.

The virtual machine has these specs: D13, 8 cores, 56Gb RAM which is one of the top options available from Azure.

  • How can I use aggregate function SUM on an alias column?
  • Columns total in row and transpose (SQL server)
  • How to access 3rd table from 1st table in laravel
  • SQL Server : MERGE performance
  • How can I retrieve a table from stored procedure to a datatable?
  • sql-server which owner should i use?
  • While running backups, the database causes timeout errors to the web application (roughly 100 concurrent users).

    I would expect a top notch hardware from Azure to manage backups and attend users requests without struggling.

    Is this something acceptable? What alternatives could I implement to avoid this?

    One Solution collect form web for “SQL Server 2014 time outs while running backups”

    Try Implementing backups using Split Backup mechanism. This will use multiple threads to backup your database and the time taken to complete backup process is less.

    For huge databases this is the best approach in my opinion

    MS SQL Server is a Microsoft SQL Database product, include sql server standard, sql server management studio, sql server express and so on.
