How to Build your Citrix Disaster Recovery environment in Microsoft Azure

One of the great Platform Services of Microsoft Azure is DRaaS, what stands for Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service or also named as Recovery Services in the Azure ARM Portal. A simple, cost-effective and fast solution to build up a complete Recovery Site in the Azure Cloud, with no need to buy own hardware that needs to be available for stand-by! What makes old solutions very expensive, in operational costs. It also gives you the flexibility to simply start individual servers, in case of a single server or hypervisor outage. At this moment, there is no official Citrix solution to provide any out-of-the-box disaster recovery capabilities to the cloud, and because of the increased collaboration between Citrix and Microsoft, this is the solution that Citrix advise you to use these days, what makes this solution definitely one to remember!

Also one text I like to mention, last week Prasanna Padmanabhan from the Citrix Azure Engineering team, tweeted this following message, what exactly symbols the way of thinking about the Azure DRaaS solution;

With the ASR (Azure Site Recovery) service Microsoft offers a new way to secure replicate your on-premises VMware, Hyper-V and physical servers to Azure and back to your on-premises site over an SSL encrypted channel, with VMware support, without the need to uninstall the VMware tools first! The on-premises site needs to be prepared with a Process server installation, also called the Management server. This server will be proceeding the server synchronization to the Azure site. When you failover to azure, the Recovery Services – Recovery plan creates all the protected Virtual Machines groupwise in Azure for you.
