You need first of all, an Azure subscription to deploy Non-office 365 workers resources.
Two azure services are required :

b. Azure Search: for indexing items.
For the installation, make sure to download our terraform scripts that will help you to easily create the services.
From Powell manager, in the "Non Office 365 workers" section, in the "Settings" part, two buttons permit you to download the scripts :

Plan the execution of a PowerShell script to perform the backup.
The full script can be found on Github here.
Plan the execution of an AzCopy command to perform the backup.
