This is one of the most suitable approaches for all those applications that need aggressive recovery time as well as recovery point objectives (RPO). Replication is also relevant for those applications that need awareness.

Basically, replication products are based on the process of continuous data protection or CDP.
This is one of the most popular cloud based disaster recovery options which we use to put both the disaster recovery instances and primary production. We follow this approach to a great extent as it helps reap the benefits of cloud computing in the best possible way.

In this way, we help our clients continue the operations without any hassle.
