Simple to deploy and manage

Set up Azure Site Recovery simply by replicating an Azure VM to a different Azure region directly from the Azure portal. As a fully integrated offering, Site Recovery is automatically updated with new Azure features as they’re released. Minimise recovery issues by sequencing the order of multi-tier applications running on multiple virtual machines. Ensure compliance by testing your disaster recovery plan without affecting production workloads or end users. And keep applications available during outages with automatic recovery from on-premises to Azure or Azure to another Azure region.
