The cost and ongoing management of disaster recovery (DR) infrastructure often makes up a large percentage of IT spend for a service that is rarely used; the advent of public Cloud infrastructure however enables a new approach to managing your DR environment. By making use of on-demand infrastructure you're able to reduce the cost and complexity of your DR services, removing the need to make large scale capital expenditure purchases on the replication of hardware and software in backup datacenters.
Your environment, whether it's based on physical or virtual infrastructure (or both), can be protected by automating the replication of physical and virtual hosts based on policies that you set and control. We co-ordinate and manage the ongoing replication of data by integrating with existing technologies such as Hyper-V Replica, System Center and SQL Server AlwaysOn. In the event of a disaster your business can restore service quickly through orchestration and recovery tools, or automatically through pre-defined policy, reducing the cost of your physical infrastructure without compromising service availability.
