OculusIT partners with the leading Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) from around the globe to offer cloud based Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity Planning (BCP), enabling businesses to protect production applications in the cloud. With years of expertise in Disaster Recovery, OculusIT can go beyond simple backup to ensure all your key workloads are protected and the Disaster Recovery process is tuned to your business priorities and compliance needs.
- Huge cost reductions in capital expenditure
- Reduction in complexity (setting DR on cloud is easy as compared to setting it up on physical infrastructure)
- Further reduced cost in operations expenditure as you can keep your DR VMs in off state when they are not replicating or being used
- Easy maintenance.
Your environment can be protected by automating the replication of the virtual machines based on policies that you set and control. Site Recovery can protect Hyper-V®, VMware®, and physical servers and you can use Azure® or your secondary data center as your recovery site. Site Recovery coordinates and manages the ongoing replication of data by integrating with existing technologies including system center and SQL server.
Automate the orderly recovery of services in the event of a site outage at the primary datacenter with Site Recovery. Bring over applications in an orchestrated way to help restore service quickly, even for complex multi-tier workloads. Easily create disaster recovery plans in the Microsoft® Azure® classic portal, where they are stored. The disaster recovery plans can be as simple or as advanced as your business requirements demand, including the execution of custom Windows® PowerShell® scripts and Azure® Automation Runbooks® and pauses for manual interventions. Customize networks by mapping virtual networks between the primary and recovery sites and test disaster recovery plans whenever you want without disrupting the services at your primary location.
Replicating your workloads to Azure® enables new capabilities. Applications can be migrated to Azure® with just a few clicks or burst to Azure® temporarily when you encounter a surge in demand. You can run reports and analytics on copies of production workloads in Azure® without impacting users. You can DevTest® new versions of applications with copies of live data and then seamlessly put the new version into production in your data center.
Site Recovery monitors the state of your protected instances continuously and remotely from Azure®. When replicating between two sites you control, your virtual machines’ data and replication remains on your networks. All communication with Azure® is encrypted. When replicating to Azure® as the secondary site, your data is encrypted and you can also select encryption for data at-rest.
