Azure site recovery
Azure Site Recovery (ASR) makes it possible for businesses to minimize service downtimes due to IT operational interruptions. Microsoft Azure Site Recovery orchestrates and manages disaster recovery for both physical servers and Windows, Linux, Hyper-V, and VMware virtual machines
Azure Site Recovery provides two types of functionality;
- Replication – Replication synchronizes the contents of the operating systems and the data disks attached to the servers and virtual machines hosted on either Azure or in the on-premises environment between the primary site and the secondary site.
- Orchestration – Orchestration is responsible for seamless failover and failback between the primary and the secondary sites if a disaster affects the primary site.

- A physical computer on which to install the configuration server.
- Azure Storage Account
