With NetApp SnapMirror Data Replication discover fast, efficient backup and disaster recovery with array-based data replication. Unified data replication protects your business. Transport data seamlessly and efficiently between NetApp storage systems to support both backup and disaster recovery with the same target volume and I/O stream. Simplify data-protection management across the Data Fabric with cross-platform replication — from flash to disk to cloud. Flexible deployment can slash your overall TCO. Replicate between ONTAP devices, regardless of host protocol or media type, as well as between disparate ONTAP versions. Use FlexClone to create thin clone volumes — rapidly, and efficiently — on secondary storage to accelerate application test and development. Leverage native data format on secondary storage for easy, risk-free DR testing using FlexClone. Efficient operations cut network traffic, shrink your storage footprint. Reduce network traffic by only transporting changed data blocks.
Preserve data-reduction benefits on the primary storage during transport — including deduplication, compression, and compaction. Deliver additional inline efficiencies with network compression. NetApp SnapMirror Data Replication offers efficient, array-based replication for backup and disaster recovery across the Data Fabric. Replicate efficiently to another AFF system or to any other NetApp SnapMirror Data Replication supported system for backup and DR. Deploy Software-Defined storage for your remote or branch offices — and in your data center. Leverage FAS systems’ massive scalability for a central backup repository and data multiuse. Maintain data governance and reduce your data-center costs for secondary storage. Replicate data to and from the cloud to support DevOps and cloud-based disaster recovery. Deliver end-to-end Snapshot-based backup to the cloud leveraging NetApp SnapMirror integration with AltaVault.
NetApp SnapMirror Data Replication Software
NetApp SnapMirror Data Replication software is a cost-effective, easy-to-use unified replication solution across the Data Fabric. It replicates data at high speeds over LAN or WAN. You get high data availability and fast data replication for your business-critical applications, such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle, in both virtual and traditional environments. When you replicate data to one or more NetApp storage systems and continually update the secondary data, your data is kept current and is available whenever you need it. No external replication servers are required. SnapMirror delivers powerful data management capabilities for virtualization, protecting your critical data while providing the flexibility to move data between locations and storage tiers, including cloud service providers. Integration with Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware technology helps make the benefits of SnapMirror in a physical server environment equally applicable in virtual environments.
Reduce Network Bandwidth Utilization And Storage Footprint
NetApp SnapMirror Data Replication leverages NetApp ONTAP storage efficiencies by sending only changed blocks over the network. NetApp SnapMirror also uses built-in network compression to accelerate data transfers and reduce network bandwidth utilization by up to 70%. With NetApp SnapMirror, you can leverage one thin replication data stream to create a single repository that maintains both the active mirror and prior point-in-time copies, reducing network traffic by up to 50%. In addition to enabling failover to an earlier point in time (to recover from mirrored data corruption or data loss), it also eliminates the need for a separate infrastructure for maintaining backups at the DR site. You can therefore reduce DR site storage costs by up to 40% (because there is only one baseline copy for both).
