Hitachi ShadowImage Replication

Today’s frugal business-continuity, risk-reduction strategies and optimized IT operations must support essential competences. Requirements include the ability to quickly replicate data for critical application processing, testing and developing new applications, zero downtime recovery, data migration and necessary backup operations.



SAN Data Systems expertise works with ShadowImage (SI) which uses local mirroring technology to create and maintain a full copy of any volume in the storage system. With SI software you can create one or more copies of a data volume within the same storage system. You can use SI copies as backups, with secondary host applications, for data mining, for testing, and other uses, while your business operations continue without stopping host application I/O to the production volume.
