Support for Azure virtual machines availability sets has been a highly anticipated capability by many Azure Site Recovery customers. Today, I am excited to announce that Azure Site Recovery now supports creating failed over virtual machines in an availability set.

Welcome to Azure CLI Shell Preview

Monday, April 17, 2017

A few months ago, Azure CLI 2.0 became generally available to the public, and we heard feedback asking for something more interactive because the CLI is inherently optimized for scripting. Today, we are announcing an interactive shell to wrap around the CLI which is that focusses on the human users.

One-click cloud migration and disaster recovery of applications

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

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.
