Creating a complex data infrastructure is easy to achieve with Azure data Recovery, which maintains security at all times so that you can work with multiple connections between different types of services without the information becoming fragile at any time. This means that there is no way for data to be affected by any type of malware or external software that is not related to or allowed by the company. Azure Site Recovery creates replicas of virtual machines that are used in other regions of the company with amazing speed, and adds all the information to the physical server being used. This means that the data is unalterable by third parties, and because it is so secure, different data models can be tested that are consistent for the job. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There have been no problems since the beginning of our experience with Azure data Recovery. The only negative point is that the platform does not support the protection of virtual machines whose disk is Docker, as the platform interprets this as an invalid scenario. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Azure Site Recovery is recommended to companies of any kind who wish to create restorations against disasters that have occurred at some point in the company's history and that led to data loss. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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After we executed test failover, we were excited with speed and smoothness of Azure environment so we decided to retire outdated hardware and stayed in Azure.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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Experienced staff can configure solution, that end users will even not see any difference after failover Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Reduction of on-premise systems and on-demand disaster recovery. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
