Business Continuity & Resiliency on Cloud

Site Recovery refers to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. It is essential for organizations to figure out how to keep their data safe and apps/workloads running when planned and unplanned outages occur.

Azure Site Recovery contributes to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery strategy, by orchestrating and automating replication of Azure VMs between regions, on-premises virtual machines and physical servers to Azure, and on-premises machines to a secondary datacenter.

Notes:

  • Azure Site Recovery replicates workloads running on VMs and physical servers so that they remain available in a secondary location if the primary site isn't available.
  • Azure Site Recovery keeps applications running on VMs and physical servers available if a site goes down
  • Azure Site Recovery recovers workloads to the primary site when it's up and running again
  • VMs in Azure are not created until a failover occurs
  • Azure VPN is not mandatory but recommended for DR implementations with ASR
