  • It depends on the replication policy you've configured. For example: ASR by default creates replication policy with 24hrs for recover point retention and 4 hours for app consistent snapshot frequency. With this policy, the system takes app consistent snapshot every 4 hours and sends it to the storage account and the next snapshot will be taken and sent only after 4 hours. In the meantime, you plan for a failover from primary to secondary region the systems will boot up with the latest available snapshot taken in the last interval. See the link for details.
