Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery

Modern datacenters are becoming increasingly complex, with a mix of hypervisors and physical assets. Multiple Disaster Recovery solutions are often required to address these increasingly multifaceted environments, which in turn add further complexity. Azure Site Recovery alleviates this challenge by offering comprehensive protection for VMware, Hyper-V, and physical servers, in one robust solution.

Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery: Consolidate and Simplify

Modern datacenters are becoming increasingly complex, with a mix of hypervisors and physical assets. Multiple Disaster Recovery solutions are often required to address these increasingly multifaceted environments, which in turn add further complexity. Azure Site Recovery alleviates this challenge by offering comprehensive protection for VMware, Hyper-V, and physical servers, in one robust solution.

To further reduce complexity, Azure Site Recovery allows organizations to leverage Azure as their recovery site, negating the need to manage and maintain a secondary site to protect heterogeneous workloads.

Cloud Economics

Maintaining a secondary datacenter is an expensive proposition. Significant capital is required for the initial build out and ongoing operating expenses add up quickly. In an ideal world, this secondary site will never be used, but realistically it may be used a few times per year and sit idle the majority of the time. By leveraging Azure as your secondary DR site, capital and operating expenses are replaced with a pay-as-you-go model, thus you only pay for the additional compute when you need it.

Full Featured Disaster Recovery

Tested and proven Disaster Recovery solutions for a wide range of workloads, including Microsoft workloads such as Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server

  • Protect-to-and-Recover-in-Azure: Replicate and failover your on-premises applications to Azure, negating the need to build and manage a second datacenter for recovery. Reduce expenses and only pay for compute when you need it.
  • N-Tier Application Consistency: Detect and stage mult-tier applications and restore them as a group, with specified startup ordering and the ability to insert scripts to bypass the need for manual configurations.
  • Application Replication Support: Benefit from using SQL AlwaysON and Active Directory replication when your databases and infrastructure components need the least possible RTO. Leverage ASR’s inbuilt replication technologies when the same replication technology for all tiers is adequate to meet your application’s recovery objectives.
  • No Impact Recovery Plan Testing: Perform periodic DR drills and testing without any impact to the production or recovery virtual machine

Automated VM Protection and Replication

Enable policy-based replication and protection for thousands of virtual machines using a few simple steps

  • At-Scale Configuration: Configure protection and disaster recovery networking settings that apply to your applications or your entire datacenter for seamless recovery
  • Low Recovery Point Objective (RPO): Achieve near-synchronous RPOs, as low as 30s, even when using Azure as your recovery site.
  • Quick Recovery: Recover from disruptions within minutes and benefit from Azure’s 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Data Security and Secure Transmission: Data is encrypted when in transit and at rest in Azure.
