The evaluation of SQL 2014 continues and here is what's new in Backup and Restore of SQL Server 2014.
In SQL Server 2014, we will be able to backup the database to Windows Azure storage and restore the database backup directly from the Windows Azure storage. 

To backup a database to Windows Azure storage, Choose the "Back up To:" to "URL" instead of "Disk"


To restore a database from Windows Azure storage, Choose the "Backup media type:" to "URL" instead of "File"

And here is where you connect to the Windows Azure storage during restore operation
