In this blog post, I want to share some exciting news about Azure Site Recovery (ASR), the service that helps you protect your applications by orchestrating replication, failover and recovery of virtual machines and physical servers.
One of the challenges that some customers face with ASR is the high churn rate of their workloads, which means that they have frequent changes in the data or configuration of their machines. This can result in increased replication traffic, storage consumption and recovery point objectives (RPOs).
To address this challenge, we are happy to announce that ASR now supports higher churn rates for Hyper-V and VMware workloads. This means that you can replicate and recover machines that have up to 4 GB per hour of data change rate per disk, which is four times higher than the previous limit of 1 GB per hour.
This feature is available for all regions and recovery services vaults. You don’t need to do anything to enable it, as it is automatically applied to your existing and new replication policies. You can monitor the churn rate of your machines from the ASR portal or using PowerShell cmdlets.
We hope that this feature will help you protect your high-churn workloads with ASR and achieve your business continuity and disaster recovery goals. To learn more about ASR and how it can help you, please visit our documentation page.
Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more updates!
