Backup/Restore older versions of SQL Server to Windows Azure Cloud

SQL Server 2012 supported backing up database to Windows Azure . Of course higher versions will also be capable and in fact SQL Server 2014 will also do so more easily. What if you wanted to backup your SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008R2 to the Cloud. Well, a new 3 step tool released by Microsoft can do it, no problem (it appears). The tool supports backup compression and encryption to boot.
