As an organization you need to adopt a business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) strategy that keeps your data safe, and your apps and workloads up and running, when planned and unplanned outages occur Azure Recovery Services contribute to your DR strategy:
- Site Recovery service: Site Recovery helps ensure business continuity by keeping business apps and workloads running during outages. Site Recovery replicates workloads running on physical and/or virtual machines (VMs) from a primary site to a secondary location. When an outage occurs at your primary site, you fail over to secondary location, and access apps from there. After the primary location is running again, you can fail back to it.
Site Recovery can manage replication for:
- Azure VMs replicating between Azure regions.
- On-premises VMs and physical servers replicating to Azure, or to a secondary site.
