Keep your business going strong with Azure Site Recovery

Outages are generally caused by operational failures as well as natural events. Even a small outage can put your business at a competitive disadvantage. Hence, your business should be ready with a business continuity & disaster recovery (BCDR) strategy so that your data stays safe as well as apps remain available even during unplanned & planned  downtime & your business returns to normal conditions as early as possible.

Azure Recovery Services can contribute to your business continuity and disaster recovery or BCDR strategy.

The Azure Backup service can help you keep your data safe as well as recoverable all the time. Azure Site Recovery replicates, fails over, as well as recovers workloads, so that they are available even when failure occurs.

Have a look at some of the benefits of Azure Site Recovery (ASR)

Simplified BCDR

You can replicate, fail over as well as recover multiple workloads from a single location in the Azure portal. Site recovery orchestrates replication as well as failover, without intercepting application data.

Disaster Recovery in the cloud

You can eliminate the complexity as well as cost of maintaining a secondary data centre as you can replicate any workload running on physical servers as well as VMs to Azure rather than to any secondary site.

Offers flexible replication

You can replicate any workloads running on supported VMware VMs, Hyper-V VMs as well as Windows or Linux physical servers.

Easy replication testing without any disruption

Without affecting production environments, you can now run test failovers quite easily to support disaster recovery drills.

Migration

You can use Azure Site Recovery in order to migrate Azure VMs between Azure regions or also to migrate on-premises AWS instances to Azure VMs.

Flexible failover as well as recovery

You can run unplanned failovers for unexpected disasters with minimum data loss (depending on replication frequency) or planned failovers for expected disasters with zero data loss. You can fail back to your primary site easily when it is available again.

Multi-tier applications

You can setup recovery plans for sequenced failover as well as recovery of multi-tiered applications. You can group machines in different tiers within a recovery plan, as well as customize how each group fails over & starts up.

Integration with other BCDR technologies

Azure Site Recovery easily integrates with other business continuity & disaster recovery or BCDR technologies.

Conclusion

So is your business ready with a business continuity plan which includes disaster recovery for your major IT systems and that too without the expense of secondary infrastructure? If not, don’t worry. Azure Recovery Services can help you. It can help you keep your valuable data protected as well as recoverable all the time.
