Disaster Recovery on Azure: 5-Week Assessment


A thorough evaluation for implementing Disaster Recovery on Azure, using Azure Site Recovery, to safeguard both physical and virtual environments.

DESCRIPTION ONLY A five-week disaster recovery on Azure assessment that provides visibility into application dependencies, the cost of your Azure environment, and an actionable failover runbook to ensure your assets are optimally protected.

As a part of the disaster recovery assessment, TierPoint will conduct a discovery and review of your infrastructure, operations, and current DR capabilities in order to maximize the benefits and use of Azure Site Recovery. Assessment activities will include the review of existing internal documentation, questionnaires, and interviews with key internal stakeholders to understand issues, expected outcomes, and appropriate recovery expectations.

A review of current DR design and organizational process will be performed to identify any gaps that might cause issues during a DR test or live DR event. Discovery will also include deploying an automated discovery tool to map out network traffic, collect resource utilization, and application dependencies. TierPoint will define and document what is required for partial and full site failovers for both DR tests and live DR events.
