“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.
