Azure Site Recovery (ASR) provides capabilities to automate protection and replication of virtual machines, providing a true Disaster Recovery as a Service Solution (DRaaS). ASR allows for data replication to multiple geographically dispersed regions, which provides a significant opportunity for cost savings while enhancing Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) and COOP capabilities.
We are excited to announce the preview of disaster recovery for Azure IaaS virtual machines (VMs) using Azure Site Recovery (ASR) in Azure Government. You can now easily replicate and protect IaaS based applications running on Azure to a different Azure Government region of your choice within a geographical cluster without deploying any additional infrastructure components or software appliances in your subscription.
Azure Government revamps Azure backup and Azure site recovery services to facilitate advanced capabilities for Government cloud users. This update brings various enhancements, summarized in the table below.
