Solution architecture: SMB disaster recovery with Double-Take DR

Small and medium-sized enterprises can inexpensively implement disaster recovery to the cloud by using a partner solution such as Double-Take DR.

This solution is built on the Azure-managed services: Traffic Manager, 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.

Products/Description Documentation

Traffic Manager

DNS traffic is routed via Traffic Manager that can easily move traffic from one site to another based on policies defined by your organisation.

VPN Gateway

The VPN gateway maintains the communication between the on-premises network and the cloud network securely and privately.

Virtual Network

The virtual network is where the failover site will be created when a disaster occurs.
