Information and announcements from Program Managers, Product Managers, Developers and Testers in the Microsoft Virtualization team.
Drum roll please!
We are super excited to announce the availability of the preview bits of Azure Site Recovery (ASR) which enables you to replicate Hyper-V VMs to Microsoft Azure for business continuity and disaster recovery purposes.
You can now protect, replicate, and failover VMs directly to Microsoft Azure – our guarantee remains that whether you enable Disaster Recovery across On-Premise Enterprise Private Clouds or directly to Azure, your virtualized workloads will be recovered accurately, consistently, with minimal downtime and with minimal data loss.
ASR supports Automated Protection and Replication of VMs, customizable Recovery Plans that enable One-Click Recovery, No-Impact Recovery Plan Testing (ensures that you meet your Audit and Compliance requirements), and best-in-class Security and Privacy features that offer maximum resilience to your business critical applications. All this with minimal cost and without the need to invest in a recovery datacenter. To know more about this announcement and what we have enabled in the Preview, check out Brad Anderson’s In the Cloud blog.
We will cover this feature in detail in the coming weeks – stay tuned and try out the feature. We love to hear your feedback!
