Inline Replication for the INFINIDAT Storage Array

The INFINIDAT Replication feature creates a replica copy of the primary snap copy of the local array on a remote array.

When you run a snap backup operation, the snapshot is created on the local array and on the remote array.

Key Features

The key feature of the INFINIDAT Replication feature is that the primary copy and the replica copy are independent of each other and can have separate retention policies.


The limitations of the INFINIDAT Replication feature are as follows:

  • The INFINIDAT Replication feature does not support the revert operation from the snapshot copy or from the replica copy.
  • In synchronous mode, the replica copy is application consistent, except for the Microsoft Hyper-V agent. In asynchronous mode, the replica copy is crash-consistent. For the Microsoft Hyper-V agent, the replica copy is crash-consistent in synchronous and asynchronous modes.
  • For inline replication, replication is performed only if the subclient on which you run the snapshot operation is associated with the replica copy.
