Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
In the present always-on digital world, downtime is undesired. From power outages to natural disasters and cyberattacks, business disruptions can lead to revenue loss, reputational damage, and competitive disadvantage. Other repercussions of an outage include mission-critical data loss, productivity dip, compliance issues, and legal entanglements. And, the longer the recovery time, the more significant the adverse impact on business. Thus, in order to prevent business disruptions and minimize their costly aftermath, organizations need to adopt a comprehensive Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) strategy.
Keep Doing Business—Even During Disruptions
Most organizations deploy resources like additional data centers, hardware, software, and staff to address downtimes. However, these additions are not only uneconomical but can also add an uninvited complexity to the business operations, making it more challenging to stay secure. Thus, businesses must adopt smarter, integrated disaster recovery solutions and Effiniti’s Azure Backup and Disaster Recovery Services is the right choice.

Effiniti Service Offerings for Azure Backup and Disaster Recovery
We offer three types of Azure recovery services that contribute to your business continuity and disaster recovery strategy. They are:
These solutions, all together, offer a comprehensive disaster management strategy that helps ensure your systems are secure, accessible, and always available — no matter where your workload is located – during an outage.
Azure Site Recovery (ASR)
Effiniti’s Azure Site Recovery is a built-in Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution. Replication, failover, and recovery processes in ASR help your business run seamlessly during planned and unplanned outages. ASR replicates on-premises data centers and Virtual Machines (VMs) from a primary site to Azure or a secondary location. In the event of an outage at your primary site, you can failover to a secondary location to keep your workloads online. After the primary location is recovered, you can failback to it.
Simplify Your BCDR
Deploy and manage replication, failover, and recovery of your workloads across hybrid and cloud from a single location.
Replicate workloads running on physical servers, Azure VMs, on-premises Hyper-V, and VMware VMs.
Run disaster recovery drills without disrupting ongoing replication.
Flexible Failovers and Failbacks
Easily run planned and unplanned failovers for expected and unexpected outages, with near-zero data loss. Failback when the primary site is available.
Keep Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) within your organizational limits.
Enable ASR between separate Azure regions and effectively comply with industry regulations.
