Azure Site Recovery enables virtual machine recovery and replication directly in Azure
Azure Site Recovery has the ability to replicate and recover virtual machines directly within Microsoft Azure without requiring System Center Virtual Machine Manager. Azure Site Recovery provides several deployment models, including the ability to replicate and recover virtual machines within Azure. This includes integration with the System Center Virtual Machine Manager component for high levels of automation and convenience, and allows you to avoid the cost and complexity of maintaining a secondary disaster-recovery site. If you’re protecting virtual machines or using alternative management tools, you now have the option of protecting your virtual machines running Hyper-V in Azure without using System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
