Following the substantial growth of Azure ARM in Q4 2016, CloudEndure is excited to announce that it now supports disaster recovery and live migration for Azure ARM on top of its prior support for Azure Classic deployment models (ASM). As a result, Azure customers can benefit from advanced features and capabilities when using CloudEndure for disaster recovery or migration:
No Performance Impact — CloudEndure’s Continuous Data Protection (CDP) operates in the background — neither taking snapshots nor writing any data to disk — which means there is no performance disruption on source infrastructures, even in cases of write-intensive machines such as databases and constantly changing file servers.
No Additional On-Premise Infrastructure Required — When using CloudEndure, no onsite virtual appliance is required, which means there are no additional storage, computing, networking, or OS costs to worry about.
OS Agnostic — Unlike other industry solutions, CloudEndure enables customers to mobilize machines running on both Windows and Linux operating systems, supporting all common versions and distributions.
Machine Agnostic — CloudEndure provides full migration, failover, and failback support for physical servers, virtual servers running on any hypervisor, and even servers hosted by other cloud providers.
|Capability||CloudEndure Live Migration & Disaster Recovery for Azure ARM|
|Physical Machines||Full Support|
|Additional Source Infrastructure Requirements||None|
|Performance Impact on Source Workload||None|
|Failback Support||To any physical or virtual source|
|Failback Complexity||Very easy|
|RPO During Failback||Near-zero|
|Point-in-Time Recovery||30 days back|
Near-Zero RTO & RPO — Target machines can be launched to Azure ARM in minutes in their most up-to-date versions (up to the last second) thanks to Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and automated machine conversion and orchestration.
Failback Support — After a disaster is over, CloudEndure provides one-touch failback to any physical or virtual sources and enables the same near-zero RTO and RPO described above.
Point-in-Time Recovery — Customers can choose to spin up the latest, most up-to-date version of their machines or an earlier version — up to 30 days back. This is a critical option for cases of database corruptions, accidental system changes, ransomware, or other malicious attacks.
