Microsoft Azure

You need IT that’s fast and flexible enough for today’s workloads and tomorrow’s demands.

Azure Site Recovery

Your business can’t afford downtime. But having a secondary data centre on standby doesn’t come cheap. With hardware, software and resourcing costs, protecting critical workloads is expensive and time-consuming.

Azure Site Recovery automatically protects your IT infrastructure and extends your data centre into the cloud when you need it.

Fire, flood, server failure and even computer viruses: no disaster can outmatch Azure Site Recovery. When the worst happens, your business can be back up and running within minutes, with no risk to your business-critical data. How’s that for peace of mind?

The anatomy of Azure Site Recovery

Azure Site Recovery replicates your on-premise physical servers and virtual machines to Azure. Or, if you have a secondary data centre, it can replicate there. If an outage occurs in your primary location, you failover to the secondary location within moments. Your applications and workloads will continue to be available. When normal operations resume, you fail back to your primary location. It’s as simple as that.


  1. Secure, continuous health monitoring
    Azure Site Recovery monitors the state of your protected systems continuously and remotely. When replicating to Azure as the secondary site, your data is encrypted, and you can also select encryption for data at rest.
  2. Orchestrated disaster recovery
    With Azure Site Recovery, you can automate the orderly recovery of services in the event of a site outage at the primary data centre. Applications can be brought up in an orchestrated fashion to restore service quickly, even for complex multi-tier workloads.
  3. Less downtime, faster recovery
    Downtime costs money. That’s why Azure Site Recovery helps you achieve lower recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) targets for every system in your organisation. You can protect your business against outages of critical systems – including SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, SAP and Oracle – and maintain availability of your data and applications during an unplanned event.
