Reduce application downtime during IT interruptions, without compromising compliance. Microsoft disaster recovery supports applications in Azure and on-premises, providing comprehensive coverage across virtual machines and physical servers. Backup and Disaster Recovery from Microsoft Azure can replace existing on-site or off-site backups with a cloud-based solution which is reliable, secure, and cost- effective. It uses various Microsoft Datacentres from 42 different regions for the remote storage location. The solution stores data in 3 separate locations within the primary data centre and 3 separate locations in an
additional data centre. All data utilising this service is encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard 256, whether it is from an on-premise or cloud-based environment. Data is stored in the Recovery Services vault in Microsoft Azure in an advanced encrypted format. Only you, the client, can unlock this data. No one, including Microsoft, can decrypt the backup data at any point. Backup Plus includes the management of the backup process, data, restore and increments of data, and guaranteed restore times are optionally available.
