You can replicate your virtual machines (VMs) to the secondary location for Azure Virtual Desktop. You use Azure Site Recovery to manage replicating VMs in other Azure locations.

Reduce Azure Virtual Desktop deployment costs by scaling virtual machines (VMs). This means shutting down and deallocating session host VMs during off-peak usage hours, then turning them back on and reallocating them during peak hours.
