Small and medium businesses can inexpensively implement disaster recovery to the cloud by using a partner solution like Double-Take DR.

This solution is built on the Azure managed services: Traffic Manager, VPN Gateway and Virtual Network. These services run in a high-availability environment, patched and supported, allowing you to focus on your solution instead of the environment they run in.

Components

  • DNS traffic is routed via Traffic Manager which can easily move traffic from one site to another based on policies defined by your organization.
  • VPN Gateway: The VPN gateway maintains the communication between the on-premises network and the cloud network securely and privately.
  • Virtual Network: The virtual network is where the failover site will be created when a disaster occurs.
