Here is the second article of 2 for the Azure Site Recovery implementation with ARM:

  1. Preparation of the environment (Part 1)
  2. Start the replication and Failover/Failback

Replicate your first VMs

Now that the Azure infrastructure is ready, we will go to step 2 to replicate VMs/Applications. Choose from where you want to replicate VMs (On-Prem for me) and to which the Hyper-V site that you created in the first article.

Today we will see how to implement a DRP solution, with Azure Site Recovery. I’ll deploy this solution, based on the ARM. ASR can be used to migrate your VMs to Azure, from VMWare to Azure, etc.

In my DRP plan, the service that I defined as critical for my business is a website. I’ll replicate this VM on Azure, with ASR. You can do the same work with a multi-tier application.

In my architecture, I have a VPN S2S to Azure. Attached to this network who is connected to the VPN, I have a second domain controller, who is acting as DNS.
