What are some different Cloud-based SQL Server DR Solutions

I am looking for some recommendations for different cloud-based SQL Server Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions.  

The current DR strategy is based on VMs and storage replication.  Everything is on premise and we use Zerto for replication to a remote datacenter from the on-premise SQL Server VMs.  Typically 2-8 seconds RPO and current RTO is about 45 minutes.  Please understand, I am not looking for solutions that are specific to the current architecture.  We are considering different options and I am looking for information regarding other,  different solutions for cloud-based DR so that I may research them and determine which ones best suit our needs.  Hopefully some cloud-savvy Experts can list a few with varied details, and I can then keep digging.

Thank you, lcohan.  I will take a look at each of these.  Do you have any experience with any of them?  If so, any input?

I believe my experience with any of these is irrelevant as the solution you will choose should strictly be based on your needs/affordability and not on my experience. Side note I work with Azure and Arcserve and so far both work great and are doing what's supposed to and so far never failed on any of our periodic DR recovery tests but this alone should not make you avoid researching the other solutions depending on your needs/environment/DR requirements.
