Disaster recovery is not only about replicating your virtual machines but also about end to end application recovery that is tested multiple times, error free, and stress free when disaster strikes, which are the Azure Site Recovery promises.

The importance and complexity involved in recovering applications was described in the previous blog of this series - Disaster recovery for applications, not just virtual machines using Azure Site Recovery.
