    It is well suited if your whole environment is virtualized to integration with vmware SRM for automation. It isn't suited if you are not using a fibre channel switch network and could get expensive if you have a lot of storage to replicate.

    In terms of cloud computing, Microsoft Azure is the only comprehensive result the company offers. Regardless of how big or small an organization is, it can make use of this system. As a cyber-security professional, this is your best option for data management. A business that wants to minimize capital expenditures can use Microsoft Azure. Many Microsoft services accept it. People with little or no knowledge of cloud computing may find it impossible. It isn’t the solution for companies that don’t want to risk having only one platform and infrastructure vendor.

    Pros

    Dell Technologies

    • Automatically discover and register VMware ESXi hosts for replication.
    • Auto-registers shared datastores , pre-defined failover Network Configuration. EMC RecoverPoint saved a lot of time and helped our team to minimize our disaster recovery window.

    • Azure simply provides end to end life cycle. Starting from the development to automated deployment, you will find [a] bunch of options. Custom hook-points allow [integration] on-premise resources as well.
    • Excellent documentation around all the services make it really easy for any novice. Overall support by [the] community and Azure Technical team is exceptional.
    • BOT Services, Computer Vision services, ML frameworks provide excellent results as compare to similar services provided by other giants in the same space.
    • Azure data services provide excellent support to ingest data from different sources, ETL, and consumption of data for BI purpose.

    Cons

    Dell Technologies

    • The Journal space that recoverpoint needs may need to be adjusted and so a lot of space is needed at both sites, production or DR, to accommodate for longer periods of DVR like recording. Failover testing may run out of capacity for long periods of time.
    • Recoverpoint requires clustering of nodes that can only be done by EMC support.
    • Recoverpoint requires that splitter devices exist for all protected arrays. VNX, VMAX, and XIO all have various degrees of integration of the splitter hardware and lose features, with VNX being the strongest in featureset.

    • In our experience, Azure Kubernetes Survice was difficult to set up, which is why we used Kubernetes on top of VMs.
    • Azure REST API is a bit difficult to use, which made it difficult for us to automate our interactions with Azure.
    • Azure's Web UI does a good job of showing metrics on individual VMs, but it would be great if there was a way to show certain metrics from multiple VMs on one dashboard. For example, hard drive usage on our database VMs.

      Moving to Azure was and still is an organizational strategy and not simply changing vendors. Our product roadmap revolved around Azure as we are in the business of humanitarian relief and Azure and Microsoft play an important part in quickly and efficiently serving all of the world. Migration and investment in Azure should be considered as an overall strategy of an organization and communicated companywide.

      Microsoft Azure's overall usability has been better than expected. Often times vendors promise the world, only to leave you with a run-down town. Not the case with our experience. From an implementation perspective, all went perfect, and from the user-facing experience we have had no technical issues, just some learning curve issues that are more about "why" than "how"

      Support is easy with all the knowledge base articles available for free on the web. Plus, if you have a preferred status you can leverage their concierge support to get rapid response. Sometimes they’ll bounce you around a lot to get you to the right person, but they are quite responsive (especially when you are paying for the service). Many of the older Microsoft skills are also transferable from old-school on-prem to Azure-based virtual interfaces.

      Alternatives Considered

      Dell Technologies

      Instead of creating the VMs, back them up and then create new VMs based on what had been templated on-premises, the organisation looked at newer and more suitable technologies from Microsoft such as Azure VM Image Builder. This saved a substantial amount of time to deploy new VMs and we made sure the VMs had geo-replication settings to avoid downtime.

      As I continue to evaluate the "big three" cloud providers for our clients, I make the following distinctions, though this gap continues to close. AWS is more granular, and inherently powerful in the configuration options compared to [Microsoft] Azure. It is a "developer" platform for cloud. However, Azure PowerShell is helping close this gap. Google Cloud is the leading containerization platform, largely thanks to it building kubernetes from the ground up. Azure containerization is getting better at having the same storage/deployment options.

      Return on Investment

      Dell Technologies

      • Recoverpoint allowed the Business to have DR capabilities across a multitude of EMC arrays. It allowed the centralization of VM's to be protected across environments both locally as well as remotely.
      • Recoverpoint can bring RTO down to minutes and can keep RPOs down to quickly restorable levels as well.

      • Brings down Capex to customers.
      • Some of the built-in security features of DDoS Basic protection that comes with VNET on Azure or even WAF on AGW brings huge advantages to customers.
      • Hybrid benefits for those who have software assurance can save even more costs by moving to Azure.
