NetApp PowerShell Toolkit 101: Data Protection

Protecting data is arguably the most important job that your storage is entrusted with. Losing data is simply not an option, so it’s critical to protect data through the use of backups and replication.

There are different ways that you can replicate data in your clustered Data ONTAP system. First, you can replicate to a separate volume of the same SVM in the cluster. Second, to a volume that belongs to a different SVM in the same cluster. Finally, replication can be configured with another cluster entirely.

In this post we will cover:

  • Peering Relationships
    • Cluster Peers
    • SVM Peers
  • SnapMirror Policies
  • SnapMirror
    • Version Flexible SnapMirror
  • SnapVault
  • Load Sharing Mirrors

If you are interested in additional detail about SnapMirror and SnapVault in clustered Data ONTAP 8.3, please see the post I did over at DatacenterDude.com.
