The cloud appeals to businesses for multiple reasons as it addresses many of their long standing IT issues. Whether it is lowered costs, faster deployments or just less internal red tape to deal with, businesses are finding the ease and ubiquity of the cloud tempting. One of the newer use cases topping many priority lists is leveraging the cloud for disaster recovery. Have you considered using the Cloud for Disaster Recovery?

The biggest benefit of DR to the cloud is the cost savings gained because there is no longer a need to build or rent a secondary data center. Symantec Disaster Recovery Orchestrator gives businesses the flexibility to affordably and easily initiate disaster recoveries of their Microsoft Windows applications to and from the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Symantec Disaster Recovery Orchestrator delivers the following benefits:

  • Application-based replication and automated, orchestrated recovery between on-premise and Microsoft Windows Azure, including takeover and failback.
  • On-premise compute independence: protect applications running in physical or in virtual environments.
  • Fire Drill to provide non-disruptive recoverability confidence DR testing.
  • In-Azure management portal providing simplified deployment and DR management experience as well as basic DR reporting.
