General availability: Azure Site Recovery now supports cross-continental disaster recovery for 3 region pairs
Published date: 29 April, 2021
Azure Site Recovery now supports cross-continental disaster recovery. With this release, a virutal machine can be replicated from a region in one continent to a region in another. In the event of a planned or unplanned outage, the virtual machine can be failed over across continents. It can then be re-protected and failed back once the outage is mitigated.
This functionality is currently available for the following 3 cross-continental region pairs:
- Southeast Asia and Australia East
- Southeast Asia and Australia Southeast
- West Europe and South Central US
