Protect your ambient by automating virtual machine replication based on policies you define and control. Azure Site Recovery can protect physical servers, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware. Besides, you can use Azure or your secondary datacenter as a recovery site. Site Recovery coordinates and manages continuous data replication to existing technologies, including Microsoft SQL Server's System Center and AlwaysOn.
Use Site Recovery to automatize service recovery when a interruption on your primary datacenter site occurs. Bring applications in a orchestrated way to help restore services quickly, even in complex multilayered workloads. Create recovery plans with ease on Microsoft Azure and store them there. Disaster recovery plans can be as simple or as advances as your business needs, including customized Windows PowerShell script execution and Azure Automation runbooks, besides pauses for manual interventions. Customize networks by mapping virtual networks between primary and recovery sites, and test disaster recovery plans whenever you want without interrupting services in the primary site.
Replicate your workloads to Azure and enable new resources. Applications can be migrated to Azure with just a few clicks, or suddenly moved to Azure in a temporary way when you're faced with a sudden increase in demand. Run reports and workload copy analysis in Azure without affecting your clients. Make development tests for new application versions with dynamic data copies, so you can put the new version in production directly in your datacenter.
Site Recovery monitors your protected instances' states continuously and remotely from Azure. By replicating between two sites you control, data and virtual machine replication remain in your network. All communication with Azure is cryptographed. By replicating to Azure as a secondary site, your data is cryptographed and can also choose cryptography for in rest data.
