Title: Information System Recovery And Reconstitution | Transaction Recovery
Ownership: Customer, Microsoft
Description: The information system implements transaction recovery for systems that are transaction-based.
Requirements: Currently there are no transaction-based systems in the Azure environment. The primary and alternate sites are operational, management, and technical mirrors. Therefore, the need to recover and reconstitute information systems during significant contingency events is eliminated. Instead of using transaction journaling, Azure uses live replicated databases. MySQL uses transaction journaling while Microsoft SQL uses transaction logs. Transaction logging is a core function of the SQL engine and cannot be disabled. Common practice at Microsoft is replicate the transaction log to multiple assets and replay them to keep hot standby secondary databases on those assets up to date. This mechanism is referred to as Always On. Always On maintains multiple copies of a single database that reside on different server instances in different locations. One server instance serves the database to clients (the primary server). The other instance acts as a hot or warm standby server. In the event of a disaster, a failover quickly brings the standby copy of the database online (without data loss). For an Overview of SQL Server Always On, please refer to Therefore, this is an alternative to transaction journaling because it provides the means to provide support for contingency events. Also, per Microsoft "10.01 Business Continuity Management Standard", transaction recovery plans are required and managed by the different business groups to ensure the continuation of business processes in the event of an interruption.
