Site Recovery

Ensure application availability with cloud-based disaster recovery

Reduce application downtime during IT interruptions, without compromising compliance. Microsoft disaster recovery supports applications in Azure and on-premises, providing comprehensive coverage across Linux, Windows, VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines, and physical servers.

Reduce infrastructure costs

Lower your on-premises infrastructure costs by using Azure as a secondary site for conducting business during outages. Or, eliminate datacenter costs altogether by moving to Azure and setting up disaster recovery between Azure regions. You can pre-assess network, storage, and compute resources needed to replicate applications from on-premises to Azure—and pay only for compute and storage resources needed to run apps in Azure during outages.

Simple to deploy and manage

Set up Azure Site Recovery simply by replicating applications between Azure regions in three steps. As a fully integrated offering, Site Recovery is automatically updated with new Azure features as they’re released. Minimize recovery issues by sequencing the order of multi-tier applications running on multiple virtual machines from the Azure portal. Ensure compliance by testing your disaster recovery plan without impacting production workloads or end users. And keep on-premises applications available during outages with automatic recovery to Azure.

Minimize downtime with dependable recovery

Azure Site Recovery is backed by a 99.9 percent SLA and 24x7 support to keep your enterprise running smoothly. With best-in-class recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO), you can feel confident that your Azure and on-premises applications will be available and compliant.
