Business Continuity

In an increasingly digital world, business continuity is crucial for organizations of all sizes. In times of crisis, it’s more important than ever to keep operations and services up and running.

Azure Site Recovery and Azure Backup are two Microsoft solutions that help businesses ensure business continuity. These tools allow for a rapid and effective response to any incident that may disrupt normal operations.

Tools like Azure Site Recovery and Azure Backup enable organizations to recover quickly from interruptions and minimize downtime. Azure Site Recovery and Azure Backup are comprehensive solutions that enable businesses to protect their data and systems against a variety of threats, from natural disasters to system failures and cyberattacks.

What is Azure Site Recovery?

Azure Site Recovery is a Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution from Microsoft that allows for the replication and failover recovery of virtual and physical machines.

Some of its key features include:

  • Managed replication and failover from an administration console.
  • Migration of virtual machines (VMs) between Azure regions or from local data centers.
  • Management of recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) with an RPO of up to 30 seconds.

This solution can be useful during a crisis by allowing businesses to keep their systems running, even when their local infrastructure is affected.

What is Azure Backup?

Azure Backup is a Backup as a Service (BaaS) solution that provides integrated backup and recovery functionalities in the Azure platform.

Some of its key features include:

  • Backup and restoration of virtual machines, files and folders, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL, and more.
  • Multi-factor authentication and alerts of suspicious behavior to reduce the threat of malware or ransomware attack.
  • Ability to set short or long term data retention times (up to 99 years).

During a crisis, Azure Backup can help businesses protect their data and recover quickly in case of data loss.

Success Cases with Azure Site Recovery and Azure Backup
