Disaster recovery for branch offices and SMB through Azure Site Recovery

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Today we are excited to announce the general availability of disaster recovery to Azure for branch offices and SMB through Azure Site Recovery (ASR). This feature provides consistent replication, protection, and recovery of virtual machines directly in Microsoft Azure. This feature provides a simple, reliable, and cost-effective disaster recovery solution that you can use to enable virtual machine replication and recovery between Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft Azure for your location. With this release, ASR can also be used in locations where SCVMM is not deployed. This feature builds on the Hyper-V replica technology that is available in Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft Azure to provide remote health monitoring, no-impact testing, and single-click orchestrated recovery. It is backed by an enterprise-grade SLA.
