"After failover, we decided to stay in Azure"

What do you like best?

Implementation of Site Recovery let`s you one great thing, try your on-premise services, running in Azure. After we executed test failover, we were excited with speed and smoothness of Azure environment so we decided to retire outdated hardware and stayed in Azure. Solution was implemented in Hyper-V server and didn`t took long to be configured appropriately, so migration was transparent to our users. The only difference they noticed was increased speed of applications. According to documentation solution could be used with VMware and AWS virtual machines as well as with physical servers, which is also cool.

What do you dislike?

heavy network load during initial synchronization, we don`t have much bandwidth, so it was sufficient when only delta was sent to Azure, but network was very slow when we started Site Recovery for the first time

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pay attention on setting up recovery plans, if machines are started in wrong order, your environment can become unusable

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy migration to Azure

"Keeps your infrastructure live, even after disaster"

What do you like best?

Site Recovery provides new level of resiliency of your physical servers and virtual machines, it orchestrates replication and provides failover options in case of outage. You can chose between on-premises data center or Azure as secondary location for your workloads. solution is not so hard to implement, Microsoft also provides all required tools for capacity planning, so you can perform assessment of your infrastructure, to determine if you have enough network bandwidth to handle replication process. Support of Hyper-V and VMWare hypervisors as well as Azure virtual machines that could be replicated to another subscription. Also ASR has some support for AWS EC2 instances. Abbility to perform test failover without puttiong your actual servers down, it is also useful if you need to quickly create a copy of your production environment for testing purposes and destroy it, when testing completes. Comfortable and reasonable pricing for such kind of solutions

What do you dislike?

AWS EC2 is supported as primary location, but it will work only one-way, so you will not be able to fail back. Useful for migration from AWS but not for additional resiliency. Failing back from Azure can utilize a lot of outbound traffic, and can increase your mothly costs for Azure. VMWare configuration is complex and requires additional server to be deployed on-premises

Recommendations to others considering the product

Experienced staff can configure solution, that end users will even not see any difference after failover

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Disaster Recovery and temporary testing environments for critical production systems

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are using for DB make sure you connect with SQL studio to rename the old DB and once recovered rename the new one to the old name.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

if a client changed something or a site was updated and now its not accessible. now i can just recover the site quickly and minimize outage.

"Azure Site Recovery Cloud service"

What do you like best?

It can backup online both Windows and Linux infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) VMs (and physical). In addition, it supports Windows Server and System Center management tools.

What do you dislike?

You need to have IT-level knowledge for all but the simplest disaster recover scenarios. Furthermore, a. System Center Virtual Machine Manager is required for multi-VM configurations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Azure Site Recovery is a platform that helps you manage all your applications and data. Through its Ease of Use it offers an open and flexible infrastructure for users and enables them to employ Azure in order to operate all of their applications. In my opinion, it is a one of the most highly sophisticated cloud products, currently available in the market, that provides an ease-to-use set of back-up , disaster recovering (DR), and reporting features. And all these in a very good price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a very good choice if you want to protect a plethora of important workloads on both VMware and Hyper-V. The price is also good offering a competitive storage, as well as a failover capability. Finally, it offers good integration with System Center, which makes Azure Site Recovery very user-friendly for Windows operations.

"Great Integration with other Microsoft platforms"

What do you like best?

The native integration with on-prem Microsoft products such as Windows 2012 R2 and Data Protection Manager. The Azure Site Recovery feature closes the gap for Disaster Recovery and provides new options vs. the traditional costly colocation models.

What do you dislike?

Some functions still have to be managed via Powershell vs. a GUI interface. One of the attractive draws to moving to a cloud model is reducing the need to IT expertise so adding more GUI management features would be beneficial.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take note of the integration it provides with Active Directory and on-premise Microsoft based platforms. That is where Azure excels vs. other public cloud platforms such as AWS and Google.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reduction of on-premise systems and on-demand disaster recovery.
