Exchange 2013 DAG Disaster Recovery to Azure using ASR platformed on VMware Esxi RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI Team,

    We are planning to deploy Azure ASR recovery model for the servers which runs on Vmware ESXi host. 

    On-premises server details are as follows.

    1. SQL ( 2 SQL 2012 nodes configured under Windows Fail-over Cluster. )

    2. Exchange 2013  ( 2 Exchange 2013 nodes configured with DAG under Windows Fail-over Cluster. )

    3. Windows 2012 File Server

    4. Domain Controller (Windows 2012)

    We are planning to install a Azure Process server locally to replicate all the servers to Azure Cloud. 

    In an actual Disaster recovery Scenario, we are planning to spin up the DR work loads replicated to Azure Blob storage with the same host name and IP address.

    How ever we read from the below compatibility matrix  article that we cannot bring up Exchange server with DAG platformed on VMware Esxi ,cannot be brought online on Azure cloud . 


    Please let us know more details about spinning up the sever backup for Exchange server and SQL server on Azure cloud on an Disaster Recovery Scenario. 

    Thanks in Advance .

    Best Regards,

    Nithin Nan
