Planning For Azure Site Recovery? Here’s What You Need to Know
Azure Site Recovery (ASR) is a DRaaS solution that provides failover protection for virtual infrastructure and physical workloads. In other words, it can safeguard your on-premises data during an outage or disaster as well as provide recovery services from the cloud.
Azure Site Recovery provides data replication, workload transfer, and recovery orchestration services. It also allows IT organizations to test DR failover without impacting production workloads, allowing them to scale resources on demand.
Any recovery strategy must contain all three basic elements of people, processes, and technology. Technology can be utilized to automate specific procedures and replace some human labor requirements.
All applications, be they hosted on-premises applications, on public clouds (both internal and SaaS), as well as structured data, and unstructured data, all need to be managed, This makes for a high number of possible permutations, which makes data protection all the more challenging.
The combination of highly automated off-site recovery capabilities with the cost-effectiveness of on-demand cloud economics leaves the modern IT firm with no excuse for not being completely DR-equipped.
Reasons to Select Microsoft Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery
Capex and Opex-related considerations. The opportunity to move capital expenses to the operational side of your balance sheet is a big factor in going with Azure Backup and Site Recovery.
Agile backup and seamless integration. ASR and Azure Backup platforms are agile and they now include easy integration features, too. For organizations that have already invested in other Microsoft products the compatibility and familiarity of working with Microsoft applications often make a big difference. Since Azure Backup is integrated with Microsoft Cloud, you can access it safely and from anywhere
Considering the disruptive transformative difference the cloud has made on IT infrastructure, it is essential to consider how we manage our data, how we store it, access it, and use it to work with each other. Data protection is a critical element of our data management strategy. And a robust backup and disaster recovery plan serves as a safety net.
Reduced IT Costs
Limiting the hardware you use to only what is necessary will also reduce your IT costs. Plus, the Azure cloud eliminates the need to deal with obsolete equipment or provision new infrastructure. Organizations will also see staff savings; for instance, cloud-based software platforms that allow staff to work remotely from home can result in enormous savings.
Obsolescence is an inescapable facet of technology. The latest infrastructure gets outdated sooner than one anticipates and is often unable to handle current needs. Cloud infrastructure saves users this aggravation, as well as, the task of managing it. Azure ensures the infrastructure provided for you is always up-to-date and able to handle your workloads seamlessly, giving you the flexibility you need to evolve and grow in tune with technological advances.
