Conceptual architecture: Enterprise Scale Disaster Recovery
A large enterprise architecture for SharePoint, Dynamics CRM and Linux web servers hosted on an on-premise data centre with failover to Azure infrastructure.
This solution is built on the following Azure managed services: Traffic Manager, Site Recovery, Azure Active Directory, VPN Gateway and Virtual Network. These services run in a high-availability environment that is patched and supported, allowing you to focus on your solution instead of the environment they run in.
|DNS Traffic is routed via Traffic Manager which can easily move traffic from one site to another based on policies defined by your organisation.|
|Azure Site Recovery orchestrates the replication of machines and manages the configuration of the failback procedures.|
|Blob Storage stores the replica images of all machines that are protected by Site Recovery.|
Azure Active Directory
|Azure Active Directory is the replica of the on-premise AD services, allowing cloud applications to be authenticated and authorised by the company.|
|The VPN gateway maintains the communication between the on-premise network and the cloud network securely and privately.|
|The Virtual Network is where the failover site will be created when a disaster occurs.|
