Azure for DR RRS feed

  • Question

  • DR question, client uses hyper V, there building burns down, we restore there server VM to Azure and start it back up, how do the employees then connect to this VM from there homes to continue working until a work site can be set-up?

    I see that you can RDP into the server, but how would it provide File Shares for employees to work out of, or how could Accounting staff connect to the server to work in QuickBooks or Sage packages?

    Would we have to set-up a Point to Site connection at every employee's home?  What if they are traveling for business?

    Thank you for your answers, we are trying to understand how we can promote this to our clients as DR solution but need to have a full understanding of how it functions first.

  • You can use the Remote Desktop Services here in order to enable more than two simultaneous sessions to the VM. With remote desktop gateway installed you can share the DNS name of the gateway server as well as address to your client/employees to connect the respective VM in the azure.

    You can even enable Azure MFA that works with the RD Gateway to provide extra security to your RDS services.

    Here the documentation for RDG for better understanding.
