Mirroring overview

Contributors netapp-jolieg netapp-ivanad

Use the mirroring features to replicate data between a local storage array and a remote storage array, either asynchronously or synchronously.


Synchronous mirroring is not available on the EF600 or EF300 storage system.

What is mirroring?

SANtricity applications include two types of mirroring — asynchronous and synchronous. Asynchronous mirroring copies data volumes on demand or on a schedule, which minimizes or avoids downtime that might result from data corruption or loss. Synchronous mirroring replicates data volumes in real time to ensure continuous availability.

How do I configure mirroring?

You configure asynchronous or synchronous mirroring in Unified Manager, and then use System Manager to manage synchronizations.
