Businesses are unpredictable. You never know what will come up next unless you have not planned for the future. Businesses face various types of downtimes which may or may not be controlled. Every business needs such a strategy which ensures that their business data is safe during downtimes and can be recovered to regular working conditions as soon as possible.
Microsoft Azure helps you run your business uninterrupted even in the times of disaster with its solution – Site Recovery. Site Recovery contributes to your Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery (BCDR) strategy by orchestrating replication of on-premises virtual machines and physical servers. You replicate servers and VMs from your primary on-premises data centre to the cloud (Azure), or to a secondary data centre. All this is done in matter of seconds!
Azure’s Site Recovery can help your business in the following ways:
- Fail over and recover to the primary data centre within seconds, without losing your data and time
- A no-brainer for Windows and System Center-centric operations as it integrates tightly with System Center
- Provides flexible replication of any workload from various VMs
- No mandatory secondary data centre as you can replicate the workloads on Azure
- Perform easy replication testing
- Integrates with Microsoft applications, including SharePoint, Exchange, Dynamics, SQL Server and Active Directory
- Customize Replication Solutions
Did you know? Gartner has positioned Microsoft in the Leader quadrant in the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), citing service feature innovation, cost-effectiveness and simplicity of the provider portal GUI as strengths meriting the Leader status.
Azure offers you two different deployment models – Azure Resource Manager model and Classic Services Management model. Site Recovery can be deployed in both the portals of Azure – the Classic portal in which you can support Site Recovery with the classic services management model and the Azure portal in which you can support the classic model, or Resource Manager Deployments.
Whether your apps are Windows or Linux-based, running on physical servers, VMware or Hyper-V, you can use Site Recovery to orchestrate replication, perform disaster recovery testing, and run failovers and failback.
