Disaster recovery (DR) was once a privilege reserved for large enterprises with substantial budgets and sizeable IT staffs. In year’s past, small and mid-market companies could fall back to manual or paper based processes. However, that simply isn’t the case today. For most businesses, the paper processes are a thing of the past. Losing access to their critical systems will mean loss of business, lost customers, and possibly even going out of business. This makes disaster recovery an absolute necessity. Fortunately, Azure Site Recovery (ASR) makes it cost-effective and easy. Azure Site Recovery list price is $25 per virtual machine per month – which is incredibly low.
