What will the session cover?
With Azure, Microsoft has developed products from its existing platform and created cloud specific new ones, to accelerate the time to market the latter has tended to come through acquisition. Acquiring InMage in 2014, specifically its Scout product, has enabled the Microsoft to transform Azure Site Recovery from a useful DR tool for the Windows platform into a best of breed business continuity solution. The integration of InMage Scout means that ASR can now protect Hyper-V, VMware and Windows and Linux physical servers. ASR provides automated replication of servers and orchestrated recovery to a secondary location or Microsoft Azure. In addition ASR provides simple DR testing, the ability to temporarily migrate services and, as part of Azure, you will only ever pay for what you are using.
