Why SnapMirror software for data replication?

Instant access to your business-critical data

NetApp® SnapMirror® replicates data at high speeds over LAN or WAN, so you get high data availability and fast data replication for your business-critical applications, including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle, in both virtual and traditional environments.

And when you replicate data to one or more NetApp storage systems and continually update the secondary data, your data is kept current and remains available whenever you need it. No external replication servers are required.

Key benefits

When your business needs instant access to its critical data, look no further than SnapMirror software to increase availability and speed recovery.

Increase availability and speed recovery

Easily manage replication between storage endpoints, from flash to disk to cloud. 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. Failover to any secondary volume. Recover from any point-in-time Snapshot on the secondary storage. Safeguard your most critical workloads with available zero-data–loss synchronous replication (RPO=0).

Performance Image

Lower your total cost of ownership

Put your secondary data to active business use and reduce your overall TCO by up to 60%. Data is stored natively, so features such as NetApp® FlexClone® technology enable you to create near-instantaneous, space-efficient copies of data on your secondary or tertiary storage. You can use these copies for multiple business functions without any negative effect on your production system.

New Opportunities Image

Reduce bandwidth utilization and storage footprint

Thin replication and native network compression reduce bandwidth utilization and reduce secondary storage requirements for backup and disaster recovery. With 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%.
