Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager, RELEASED

by Arman Obosyan 17. January 2014 10:57

Protecting application availability – especially against threats like regional disasters – can be a high-cost endeavor involving complex planning and the need to remotely monitor service availability.  This cost and complexity results in many applications which could benefit from protection going unprotected today.

Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager (HRM)

Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager helps protect your on premises applications by automating the replication of virtual machines to a secondary location – and as of today, it’s now generally available.

It provides three key capabilities

  • Automated Protection – HRM leverages the capabilities of Windows Server and System Center to provide on-going replication of Virtual machines to your secondary site
  • Continuous Health Monitoring – Windows Azure provides remote monitoring of service availability, and acts as the central repository for your customized recovery plan
  • Orchestrated Recovery – In the event of a service outage at your primary datacenter, you can execute your recovery plan from Windows Azure to orchestrate the recovery of services at your secondary site.

These recovery plans enable automated disaster recovery orchestration by sequencing failover of different virtual machines and application tiers and providing customization through scripts and manual actions.

Now you can easily protect, monitor, and if needed recover your applications with an easy-to-use cloud-based service.

Several customers have already deployed Windows Azure Hyper-V Recovery Manager in their environments, including as Aston Martin, United Airlines, and Pošta Slovenije.  You can read more about specific capabilities in today’s blog posts from Brad Anderson and Scott Guthrie.

Update-DatabaseSchema cmdlet in Exchange 2013

by Arman Obosyan 14. January 2014 15:09

The Update-DatabaseSchema cmdlet is a part of the infrastructure that we’ve built into Exchange 2013 to safely upgrade database schema in a DAG deployment. Unlike previous releases, a database schema upgrade in Exchange 2013 can only occur after all DAG members are upgraded to a version of software that supports the schema version and there is control over when the schema upgrade occurs (setting RequestedDatabaseSchemaVersion to a value higher than CurrentSchemaVersion up to the MaximumSupportableDatabaseSchemaVersion supported by all members of DAG).
