Even a minor outage can put you at a competitive disadvantage. So, be ready with a business continuity plan that includes disaster recovery for all your major IT systems, without the expense of secondary infrastructure.
"There was no way we could deliver disaster recovery at the size or scale that Azure can. We could never manage the capital investment or the processes that Microsoft has in place. Weâ€™re happy to let Microsoft innovate and bring new datacenter service offerings to the table so that we can focus on running our business."
Les Rowland, Chief Architect, Textron
Protect all your major IT systems – affordably.
Achieve low recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) targets for every major system in your organisation, simply and cost-effectively. Eliminate the hassle and cost of secondary data centres and tap into nearly infinite capacity at a moment’s notice with a cloud-based data recovery solution designed for the needs of enterprises.
"One large bank was about to break ground on a new disaster recovery datacenter, which would have cost US$9.3 million. But it cancelled those plans and is now going to use EVRY Azure-hosted services instead. EVRY–based disaster recovery solutions will reduce customer costs drastically."
Unify data management, security and protection
Achieve business goals for continuity and compliance throughout the lifecycle of your apps. Help secure your data with industry leading protection offered by encryption features.
"Azure has revolutionized our disaster recovery offerings in the market. Simply put, we can very easily provide centrally managed DR to our customers for 44 percent lower costs."
Ensure that apps work when you need them the most
Rest assured during an outage or disaster scenario, thanks to a disaster recovery solution that protects and natively supports the widest range of enterprise applications of any cloud disaster recovery provider. Failover your apps, and your entire data centre, with automated recovery plans in a matter of hours instead of weeks or months.
"It would have taken up to 10 days to restore the whole datacenter data from tape, a catastrophically long time. With Azure, we can recover our entire datacenter in two to three hours, and weâ€™re working to shrink that further."
Perform tests at any time for complete confidence
When a disaster hits, the last thing you want is to run into a problem. Test your business continuity plans, or run dev-test copies of production workloads in Azure whenever you need to, and without impacting users. Plus, test new versions of applications with copies of live data, then seamlessly put the new version into production in your data centre.
"We conduct tests to refine our business continuity plans in Azure Site Recovery, which runs in Microsoft Azure, as frequently as we want. This will give a new level of comfort to the business, especially around Tier 1 applications that directly influence the companyâ€™s ability to generate revenue or that protect the integrity of our brand through consistent, always available, quality service in the stores and online."
