Microsoft’s comprehensive Availability on Demand (AoD) solutions empower our customers to take advantage of the hybrid cloud by enabling enterprise scenarios such as cloud-integrated disaster recovery, cloud migration, and DevTest. Microsoft Azure and our availability offering, Azure Site Recovery (ASR), allow organizations to harness a near unlimited amount of compute and storage, combining the agility that you need to innovate quickly, while seamlessly leveraging and extending infrastructure investments.


Once you are ready to get started, check out additional product information, to start migrating your workloads to Microsoft Azure using Azure Site Recovery. We’ve also made it easier to try Azure Site Recovery to enable Availability on Demand, and to extend and help protect your datacenter. You can use the powerful replication capabilities of Site Recovery for 31 days at no charge for every new physical server or virtual machine that you replicate.


Azure Site Recovery will also be available to Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) customers to deliver hybrid cloud management capabilities unmatched by any other cloud vendor. OMS extends the value of System Center and helps you manage and protect your corporate workloads no matter where they run – Azure or AWS, Windows Server or Linux, Hyper-V or VMware.


With ASR and AoD, you replicate application data only once, and can then use that data to perform disaster recovery, migrate workloads, or create DevTest environments in Azure


To enable our customers to move heterogeneous workloads from multiple environments – VMware, Hyper-V, Amazon Web Services (AWS), or physical servers – to Azure, we are announcing the general availability (GA) of application-aware, one-click migration with Azure Site Recovery. With this new GA, all of Microsoft Migration Accelerator’s functionality is now incorporated into Azure Site Recovery. ASR also enables migration of customer workloads between Azure regions. Customers can replicate on-premises workloads to Azure with Azure Site Recovery for 31 days at no charge, effectively making migration to Azure free.
