Implementing Azure Site Recovery – Part 2 – For Hyper-V Virtual Machines in SCVMM Clouds

After I post the series of Azure Site Recovery (ASR) Planning considerations, I received an enormous quantity of feedback how It should be implemented, following those considerations. So, this is the second post of a series of 4 (see the first post here), about how to implement Azure site recovery based protection on the scenarios describe on the previous series posts. If you want to visit the series where I...

Azure Site Recovery Planning Considerations – Part 3 – For Hyper-V Virtual Machines in SCVMM clouds

On these post series, I want to cover some of the planning considerations that I usually use, when I’m designing/planning with my costumers, an ASR deployment/infrastructure. I broke down in several posts so I can cover and make easy to find the considerations that you are looking for. In this post, I will cover additional considerations when you need to configure Azure-based protection of Hyper-V virtual machines based on System...

New version of Azure Backup Server introduces Modern Backup Storage technology

WOW! What a day for me! Microsoft Azure just announces new and improved features on the new version Azure Backup Server. Let’s start! They announce with Azure Backup Server v2 (MABSv2) you can protect your VMWARE and Windows Server 2016 environment. That is really important feature (in my opinion). Now I don’t need to rely on third party backup software vendors to backup the workloads into Azure, special if the...

Options to connect your datacenter to Azure Virtual Networks – Part 3 – Site-to-Site VPN

On the one of the previous post (see here) I briefly describe the options that you have to cross-premise connections to Azure. On this post, I want to explore more one of the options: Site-to-Site VPN. Site-to-site VPNs rely on static routes to direct traffic between on-premises networks and Azure virtual networks. The Azure platform generates these routes when you create the site-to-site VPN connection based on two pieces of data:...

Virtual Machines: Hyper-V vs Azure IaaS

A lot of times, during the Azure Foundation workshops session that I usually deliver, the difference between Azure virtual machines and Hyper-V virtual machines comes up. So I decide to write this post explaining what are the most important differences between them. Sometimes, depending on the workload, it doesn’t make sense to move to the cloud. I hope this post will clarify you on that. Because Azure uses Hyper‑V as...

How to move your workloads to Azure

When integrating your on-premises environment with Azure, you might want to use the lift-and-shift approach to migrate some of your existing workloads. There are several ways to do it. You can use Azure Site Recovery to accomplish that (see here) or use one of common way to implement this approach, by capture the content of disks of physical or virtual machines residing in your datacenter, upload them to Azure storage,...

Azure Site Recovery

Azure Site Recovery (ASR) is by far one of the Azure features that I always like to play with. The improvement along the time is above extraordinaire! When I’m talking about Azure and Cloud to costumers I always ask what is their disaster recovery plan. I got a lot of different options. So far, as my best knowledge, I didn’t find any compelling solution then ASR. So what is ASR?...

Virtual Machines High Availability on Azure

In general, you want your Azure virtual machine environment to be resilient to hardware failures and maintenance events that might occur occasionally within the Azure infrastructure. The primary mechanism provided by the Azure platform that helps you accomplish this objective is the availability set feature. Availability sets are designed to gracefully handle two types of ebent that might result in downtime of individual Azure virtual machines. Planned outages. These outages...
