Symantec has announced that it will extend Symantec's Storage Foundation High Availability for Windows and Veritas Volume replicator DR (disaster recovery) software solution to the Windows Azure cloud platform.
The solution will allow organizations of any size to recover business critical applications and their associated data in Windows Azure in the event of a local failure or site disaster. It will expand the ability of Symantec’s existing business continuity solutions for Microsoft Corp., providing on-premise-to-cloud disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).
Symantec will continue to expand its availability and disaster recovery interoperability with Microsoft solutions, which includes Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server Hyper-V, and now Windows Azure. More information on the new solution will be made available at a later date.
