Using Azure Backup service alerting capabilities to get email notifications when backup alert occurs represents an efficient way to monitor your backup jobs and keep your VM backup data safe and secure. For example, once the feature is enabled, you can receive an email notification for the following critical backup alert: "Backup data for a virtual machine backup item has been deleted. The deleted data will be kept with Azure Backup service for 14 days and deleted permanently after that.". This notification will allow you to take action and undelete the VM backup item within 14 days and recover your deleted backup.
