Saviant's Azure IaaS consultants studied the complete on-premise IT Infrastructure of the client and created a DR Site in Azure Cloud using the Azure Site Recovery Service.
The solution pushes the complete on-premise data by 'Delta Encoding' technique to orchestrate the on-premise IT Infrastructure in Azure Virtual Network. In the case of any Disaster scenario in the on-premise IT Infrastructure, all the applications can easily & seamlessly 'FAILOVER' and start working from the Azure environment with minimum data loss. Once the on-premise IT Infrastructure is back to normal, Azure Site Recovery service enables easy and seamless 'FAILBACK' to the original on-premise infrastructure.
Azure Site Recovery is the most cost-effective way for Enterprises to adopt Disaster Recovery processes; as they can leverage this on a very small scale and gradually increase as and when required. Also, the cost involved is only for replicating & storing and no fees are required during the ongoing protection. Also, when setting up the DR site, an Enterprise need not buy any additional hardware or software - as Azure provides all the necessary set-up. Even after the DR site is completely functional, only upon any disaster event does the one on Azure runs. However, an Enterprise can completely overlook the cost and hassles involved in maintaining two parallel data centres.
