“Cool.. but what is Azure Site Recovery?”

Ah.. in case you, like my friend here, don’t know; Azure Site Recovery is Microsoft’s “Disaster Recovery as-a-Service” (DRaaS) offering.  Think of it as a way to set up machines and services in Azure that are off but being kept up-to-date, plus the orchestration (in the form of a Recovery Plan) to automate planned or unplanned failover.  Your source machines could be hosted on physical boxes, virtualized (Hyper-V or VMware), or even in AWS or other Azure regions.. but keeping a copy of your machines up-to-date in the Azure cloud… just-in-case.

For more information on Azure Site Recovery, visit the Getting Started with DRaaS.

And for the official announcement about the new regions, check this Azure Blog announcement.

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
