I tried backing up a different database and it worked. However the backup file was < 1 MB.
The database that fails to backup is 1.2GB on disk (one 600MB data and log file each). When backed up with compression the file is only 75 MB.
The backup operation gets to 30% within a few seconds and then stalls, and eventually it times out before making it to 40%:
10 percent processed.
20 percent processed.
30 percent processed.

Ay help you can provide would be great. I would like to use the native backup commands to get data to Azure, as opposed to using a external interface like cerebrata, and I should be able to. Please advise if there is anything we can do to troubleshoot the
issue, else we're going to have to look for another solution.
