Hi,

I am wondering, what software is used for replicating the EV Vault Store from one site to another (eg. DR) ?

I'll be using EV 10.0.3 soon and wondering what can be use ?

EMC Centeras and NetApps have their own replication mechanisms

You could also check out EV NearSync which may help with your backup issues as they claim that it eliminates the need for backups (as long as the primary and replica don't both go down)

For the VNX you can use EMC's Replication Manager

Yes, this is what I can see from the old / existing EV 8/9 that is currently set now.

It was set by my predecessor to use EMC Replication Manager to replciate the LUNs from prod to DR.

John,

depending what you want to archive as a goal. Is it HA to switchover to the mirror/replica once your main storage failed? Or is it instead of backing up to tape/disk?

Both requirements can be addressed by QUADROtech EVnearSync. It allows you a storage independent object base replication with a RPO of 0 (Allowed Dataloss in case of disaster) and a RTO (Time data is back after a disaster) of some seconds.

Best regards,

thanks all for your confirmation, I guess that there is no build in EV Sync tools, not even in EV 10.0.3
