Integrating HP 3PAR StoreServ and Microsoft Azure Site Recovery for Disaster Recovery

By Parissa Mohamadi, Microsoft Solution Manager, HP Storage Marketing

 

Azure.jpgToday, Microsoft announced the general availability of Azure Site Recovery for Enterprise Grade Storage Array-Based Replication and Disaster Recovery. Azure Site Recovery (ASR) enables you to protect, replicate and failover Virtual Machines (VMs), ensuring that your mission-critical applications are always up and running.

 

Simply put, ASR acts as the orchestrator of the replication and the failover for the virtual machines that are managed by System Center.

 

So how does storage play into all this? Having Tier-1 storage that offers advanced availability features makes it much easier to implement ASR. Microsoft and HP worked together to enable you to link together your on-premise private cloud data centers on HP 3PAR StoreServ via Azure Site Recovery. Read on to see what HP 3PAR StoreServ and Microsoft ASR can do for you.
