I’ve had conversations with several partners that were interested in or have been actively testing Azure Site Recovery for physical servers as well as VMware while we had the service in preview. Others I spoke with have been waiting for the service to become generally available. Wait no longer….
Azure Site Recovery for VMware and physical servers is now generally available, and we’ve made it easier to try Azure Site Recovery to enable Availability on Demand, and to extend and help protect your datacenter. With Site Recovery, you can quickly help protect applications running on your physical and virtual infrastructure, migrate applications into Azure, create copies of your applications in Azure for dev/test, or run analytics or reporting on replicated applications with a copy of production data.
Site Recovery helps you avoid the expense and complexity of building and managing your own secondary datacenter, and leverage the power of Azure with a just a few clicks. Now, you can use the powerful replication capabilities of Site Recovery for 31 days at no charge for every new application or VM that you replicate.
Please note that the 31-day free offer trial for VMware to VMware replication between your datacenters isn’t currently available, and will be coming soon. All other Site Recovery scenarios include the first 31 days free for every application or VM you replicate.
