This looks like file backup, isn't it?

Maybe I'm reading it wrong.  

I want to back up entire VM's and start them in Azure if necessary.
You can import the VHD and create a VM from it.

- Upload the VHD of your Vm to an Azure storage in your subscription

-In the management portal, first go to Virtual machines-> Disks and upload the hard disk
Provide the VHD URL by browsing your storage account

- You can mention that the VHD contains an operating sytem during upload

Now create a Virtual machine from Gallery and select the disk from the My Disks option
