Microsoft Azure > Business Continuity
Every organization needs a disaster recovery plan so that they can continue to operate if their IT infrastructure, or even a single critical application is not available for use. In the modern cloud enabled IT, one model could be using Azure as a fallback, when there is a loss of onsite resources. Other examples of disaster are the loss of a cloud based application due to Internet connectivity issues, or due to DDoS attacks.
Microsoft Azure provides a site recovery service as part of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) that allows Applications and workloads to be replicated to Azure so they are available with short Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).
Free LoadMaster on Azure can be integrated with standard and custom designed DRaaS solutions to ensure that there is seamless transition to backup resources and applications in the event of an outage of any kind. LoadMaster augments the standard Azure functionality and provides your administrators the tools they know from LoadMaster for DR provision in the Azure cloud. This includes the ability to use Global Sever Load Balancing (GSLB) to provide backup services in multiple global Azure regions with free LoadMaster directing requests to the best resource if an outage has affected a user’s local site.
