To prevent data loss from failure, error, or disaster, HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring software provides replication of your valuable Windows data, Exchange data, SQL Data, SharePoint, and Oracle data to another server or site
Proactive replication is a key strategy that can be coupled with tape backup and or snapshot technology for continuous data protection and point in time copies of data. Having replicated data located at two locations, customers can recover their static and transactional data in seconds without loss of productivity. Storage Mirroring can also be utilized for remote availability, centralized backup, data distribution mining, and server storage migration. HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring provides host based, continuous replication for enterprise and midrange customers seeking a low cost alternative to expensive fabric or array based replication. Patented replication and failover technology continuously capture byte level data changes as they happen and replicate those changes to one or more target servers to any location without geographic limitations. By replicating only the bytes that change, Storage Mirroring uses the absolute minimum bandwidth required to replicate your data. Advanced features let you control bandwidth usage and queue data changes for replication during off peak usage times if desired. The software does not need special hardware to run and utilizes existing LAN or WAN infrastructure that already exists in your environment saving time, money, and maintenance costs. Additionally, Storage Mirroring is storage independent so it will support any DAS, NAS, and SAN storage device and it will support many Windows platforms including Windows Server 2000, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Storage Server, 64bit Windows, and Windows on Itanium. Storage Mirroring's flexibility, resource optimization, and application specific protection enable customers to solidify their data and disaster protection strategies.
