Solution architecture: Enterprise-scale disaster recovery
A large enterprise architecture for SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, and Linux web servers hosted on an on-premises datacenter with failover to Azure infrastructure.
This solution is built on the Azure managed services: Traffic Manager, Site Recovery, Azure Active Directory, VPN Gateway and Virtual Network. These services run in a high-availability environment, patched and supported, allowing you to focus on your solution instead of the environment they run in.
|DNS traffic is routed via Traffic Manager which can easily move traffic from one site to another based on policies defined by your organization.|
|Azure Site Recovery orchestrates the replication of machines and manages the configuration of the failback procedures.|
|Blob storage stores the replica images of all machines that are protected by Site Recovery.|
Azure Active Directory
|Azure Active Directory is the replica of the on-premises Azure Active Directory services allowing cloud applications to be authenticated and authorized by your company.|
|The VPN gateway maintains the communication between the on-premises network and the cloud network securely and privately.|
|The virtual network is where the failover site will be created when a disaster occurs.|
