Simplifying DRaaS

The Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) market can be a confusing place for business customers looking for a reliable solution that guarantees their recovery time objectives. Many of the products in the market today offer a DRaaS solution in addition to, or separate from, an overall data protection strategy, often pulling the focus of IT away from their current data centre investments and momentum. These solutions add an additional layer of management complexity, and often leave businesses uncertain that they can actually recover if something goes terribly wrong. 

At SR Cloud Solutions we offer 3 market leading products that simplify and guarantee your business DRaaS objectives, these are Acronis Disaster Recovery Service offered as part of our SR Cloud platform, Datto hybrid cloud for customers with on-premise IT assets, and Azure Site Recovery.

Azure site recovery

An important part of your organization’s business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) strategy is figuring out how to keep corporate workloads and apps up and running when planned and unplanned outages occur.

Site Recovery helps do this by orchestrating replication, fail-over, and recovery of workloads and apps so that they’ll be available from a secondary location if your primary location goes down.

ASR can also be used as a migration tool to replicate protected servers into Azure IaaS.

Why use Site Recovery?

Here’s what Site Recovery can do for your business:

  • Simplify your BCDR strategy—Site Recovery makes it easy to handle replication, fail-over and recovery of multiple business workloads to Azure. In addition, utilising Azure automation run books with site recovery plans ensures a smooth and simple recovery process.   
  • Provide flexible replication—Using Site Recovery you can replicate workloads running on Hyper-V virtual machines, VMware virtual machines, and Windows/Linux physical servers.
  • Easy fail-over and recovery—Site Recovery provides zero data loss test fail overs to support disaster recovery drills without affecting production environments. After fail-over you can fail back to your primary sites. Site Recovery provides recovery plans that can include scripts and Azure automation workbooks so that you can customize fail-over and recovery of multi-tier applications.
  • Eliminate secondary data-center—You can replicate to a secondary on-premises site, or to Azure. Using Azure as a destination for disaster recovery eliminates the cost and complexity maintaining a secondary site, and replicated data is stored in Azure Storage, with all the resilience that provides.
  • Integrate with existing BCDR technologies—Site Recovery partners with other application BCDR features. For example you can use Site Recovery to protect the SQL Server back end of corporate workloads, including native support for SQL Server AlwaysOn to manage the fail-over of availability groups.
