Key features of the new Microsoft Azure Site Recovery Deployment Planner

December 19, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Azure Site Recovery Deployment Planner is now GA with support for both Hyper-V and VMware.

Disaster Recovery cost to Azure is now added in the report. It gives compute, storage, network and Azure Site Recovery license cost per VM.

ASR Deployment Planner does a deep, ASR-specific assessment of your on-premises environment. It provides recommendations that are required by Azure Site Recovery for successful DR operations such as replication, failover, and DR-Drill of your VMware or Hyper-V virtual machines.  

Also, if you intend to migrate your on-premises workloads to Azure, use Azure Migrate for migration planning. Azure Migrate assesses on-premises workloads and provides guidance

 Key features of the tool are:

  1. Estimated Network bandwidth required for initial replication(IR) and delta replication.
  2. Storage type(standard or premium storage) requirement for each VM.
  3. Total number of standard and premium storage accounts to be provisioned.
  4. For VMware, it provides the required number of Configuration Server and Process Server to be deployed on on-prem.
  5. For Hyper-V, it provides additional storage requirements on on-premises.
  6. For Hyper-V, the number of VMs that can be protected in parallel (in a batch) and protection order of each batch for successful initial replication.
  7. For VMware, the number of VMs that can be protected in parallel to complete initial replication in a given time.
  8. Throughput that ASR can get from on-premises to Azure. 
  9. VM eligibility assessment based on number of disks, size of the disk  and IOPS, OS type.   
  10. Estimate DR cost for the target Azure  region in the specific currency.


When to use ASR Deployment Planner and Azure Migrate?

  • DR from VMware/Hyper-V to Azure
  • Migration from VMware to Azure
