Disaster recovery means different things to different people. Some businesses may be fine for a week or two without their PCs and access to their business applications. However, for others, a building or power loss could cripple their business within a day. How would a disaster impact your company?

As the old adage states: “fortune favors the prepared.” Microsoft Azure provides a safe and reliable disaster recovery solution through its Azure Site Recovery service. If your network is running virtualization for its servers through either Microsoft Hyper-V or a supported version of VMWare, then it is easy and relatively inexpensive to replicate these systems to the Azure cloud. Replication can then be configured to update the cloud “mirror” as often as every thirty seconds, ensuring that the replicated systems have the most current copy of your data.

In the event of a catastrophe, businesses have the assurance that their data is safe in the Azure cloud and can turn on the replicated systems to have an operational datacenter in the cloud and be back up and running in a matter of hours instead of weeks.
