    Hello @Pradeep Kumar Ramagiri Thank you for contacting us on Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to help!

    To set up high availability in Azure resources, you can follow these general steps:

    1. Identify the resources that need high availability: Identify the resources that are critical to your application or workload and need to be highly available. This may include virtual machines, databases, storage accounts, and other resources.
    2. Choose a high availability solution: Choose a high availability solution that meets your requirements. Azure offers several high availability solutions, including availability sets, availability zones, and Azure Site Recovery.
    3. Configure the high availability solution: Configure the high availability solution for your resources. This may involve creating availability sets or zones, configuring replication for Azure Site Recovery, or other configuration steps.
    4. Test the high availability solution: Test the high availability solution to ensure that it is working as expected. This may involve simulating a failure of one or more resources and verifying that the high availability solution is able to maintain availability.
    5. Monitor the high availability solution: Monitor the high availability solution to ensure that it continues to work as expected. This may involve setting up alerts and notifications to notify you of any issues or failures. Here are some more specific steps for setting up high availability for some common Azure resources:
    • Virtual machines: Create an availability set and add the virtual machines to the availability set. This ensures that the virtual machines are spread across multiple fault domains and update domains, which helps to minimize downtime during planned and unplanned maintenance events.

    • Databases: Use a highly available database solution such as Azure SQL Database or Azure Database for PostgreSQL to ensure that your database is always available. These solutions provide built-in high availability features such as automatic failover and replication. High availability for Azure SQL Database
    • Storage accounts: Use geo-redundant storage or read-access geo-redundant storage to ensure that your data is replicated across multiple regions and is always available. Use geo-redundancy to design highly available applications
    • Azure Site Recovery: Configure replication for your virtual machines, databases, and other resources using Azure Site Recovery. This ensures that your resources are replicated to a secondary location and can be quickly recovered in the event of a disaster. About Azure Site Recovery

    Overall, setting up high availability in Azure resources involves identifying your critical resources, choosing a high availability solution, configuring the solution, testing it, and monitoring it to ensure that it continues to work as expected.
