Disaster recovery is not only about replicating your virtual machines but also about end to end application recovery that is tested multiple times, error free, and stress free when disaster strikes, which are the Azure Site Recovery promises. If you have never seen your application run in Microsoft Azure, chances are that when a real disaster happens, the virtual machines may just boot, but your business may remain down. The importance and complexity involved in recovering applications was described in the previous blog of this series - Disaster recovery for applications, not just virtual machines using Azure Site Recovery. This blog covers how you can use the Azure Site Recovery construct of recovery plans to failover or migrate applications to Microsoft Azure in the most tested and deterministic way, using an example of recovering a real-world application to the public cloud.

Azure Site Recovery is Microsoft's single disaster recovery offering for applications that works with multiple native application-level replication technologies and provides in-built replication. With features like single and multi-tier application consistency, near continuous replication, extensible recovery plans with rich automation support, and advanced network management, Azure Site Recovery does the complex job of stitching together the application assuring full application recovery, and not just virtual machine boot up. To top it all, Microsoft tests and certifies many popular first and third-party applications and provides detailed Azure Site Recovery solution guidance for them.
