For those of you that have used or are using Azure Site Recovery, your probably aware that the service only supported replication of Gen 1 VM’s. This was quite a limitation for customers who wished to replicate their Hyper-V VM’s to the Azure cloud.
Well support for Gen 2 VM’s has just been announced. It’s currently in preview but should be final in the very near future.
Among other updates to Azure Site Recovery are
– VMM to VMM Replication (both with or without SAN Replication, previosuly SAN replication was not supported).
– Replicate VM’s to azure directly from Hyper-V (previously a VMM server was required).
– Vsphere To Vsphere Replication (both with or without SAN Replication, this is a totally new feature).
– Coming soon, Vsphere to Azure replication.
