Announcement #4 in What’s New From Microsoft in March 2021
Every month Microsoft announces hundreds of new features, capabilities, and services across the Microsoft cloud platforms – Azure, Dynamics 365, and Microsoft 365. We boil it down to what is most important and share them via our monthly newsletter. Here is #4 for March of 2021.
Azure Site Recovery Gains Zonal Support
Customers now have more options to protect applications, recover faster, and meet recovery objectives.
