on-premise server to azure vm RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our office is in the process of moving to a new location. I currently have a Windows Server 2012 R2 on-premise server. i would like to have a virtual copy of our server with Azure just in case something happens to our on-premise server during transport, this way my co-workers and I can still access our server while we move offices. how do i go about accomplishing this? how will i be able to make sure all the data migrates safely to the Azure VM?

  • Hi, check Azure Site Recovery and Azure Backup or Azure File Sync services. You can make 1:1 copy of server as whole, or backup only data stored here. Just can be different based on your setup.

  • Azure Site Recovery replicates workloads running on physical and virtual machine from on-prem to Azure. This can be used to replicate your Windows Server 2012 R2 from on-prem to Azure. If something happens to your on-prem VM, you can Failover to Azure.
