You work for an organization that has a data center in an earthquake zone that runs business-critical applications. You've been tasked with providing disaster recovery for the applications in the event the infrastructure suffers an outage. There's a mixture of virtualized and physical systems at the datacenter, and your company wants to implement Azure Site Recovery to protect the supported systems.
