Reinvent disaster recovery leveraging Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure
SLAs are shrinking, creating major challenges for IT in providing services like DR without additional budget. To solve this problem, cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure are becoming the de facto infrastructure choice for DR. To make this work, cross-platform workload portability is a must. Azure provides the infrastructure we need to bring DR to tier 2 and tier 3 workloads that have never been able to afford it before. In this session, we look at methods to leverage on-prem physical or VM backup to Blob Storage for cost-effective disaster recovery; reduce costs by eliminating always-on cloud instances (needed for many backup tools); methods to protect workloads running in Azure VMs; and how to tie them all together.
