What is Azure Site Recovery?
Azure Site Recovery is a cloud service that can be licensed on a per-virtual machine (VM) or per-physical instance basis. It enables the replication and orchestration of failover processes between a company's own physical sites to Azure services. Azure Site Recovery provides several "channels" that give organizations the ability to enable disaster recovery orchestration and replication regardless of their infrastructure.
