Today, we are adding to the Azure Site Recovery portfolio of replication capabilities. This addition benefits enterprises that seek to leverage their storage area network (SAN) arrays to enable high-performance synchronous and asynchronous replication across their on-premises private clouds. They can now orchestrate end-to-end storage array-based replication and disaster recovery with Azure Site Recovery (ASR) and System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). This feature is in free preview.
The addition of a SAN as a replication channel enables key scenarios, such as synchronous replication, multiple virtual machine consistency, and support for guest clusters with Azure Site Recovery. With support for shared VHDX and iSCSI Target LUNs, ASR will now be able to better meet the needs of enterprise-class applications such as SQL Server, SharePoint, and SAP.
