Business disruptions and downtime can cause serious damage to a company's bottom line. And today, with multiple potential sources of disruption — from equipment failure to natural disasters and cyber-attacks — IT leaders are seeking even faster and more resilient disaster recovery (DR) strategies. As the tools to implement DR plans become more sophisticated, the options for leveraging public cloud infrastructure for backup, replication, and recovery have increased. Microsoft Azure Site Recovery helps ensure business continuity by enabling replication for Azure VMs and on-premises virtual machines and physical servers. Join us for a discussion around the latest trends in DRaaS, and how organizations are leveraging Microsoft Azure Site Recovery (ASR) to ensure data is safe and available.
