Site Recovery

Official Documentation

Service Description

The Hyper-V Recovery Manager enables the coordinated replication and the recovery of resources in a private cloud environment in a second environment. Using System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager, private clouds can be secured by continuous replication to a second data center location and, where necessary (in case of failure of the first location), activated.
