Migration to Cloud

Migrate your workloads to the Cloud efficiently while keeping the data safe and apps/workloads running. In this solution we use the Azure Site Recovery to replicate the data to Azure Cloud.

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.

Solution Characteristics and Business Benefits​
