Inline Replication for the HPE 3PAR StoreServ / Primera Storage Array

The HPE 3PAR StoreServ / Primera inline replication feature creates a replica copy of the primary snapshot 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.

Storage Arrays

You can use the replication feature with the following storage arrays:

  • HPE Primera
  • HPE 3PAR StoreServ

Key Features

The key features of the HPE 3PAR StoreServ / Primera inline replication feature are as follows:

  • The primary copy and the replica copy are independent of each other and can have separate retention policies.
  • The primary snapshot and the replica copy are application-consistent.
  • The snapshot replication is performed only if the subclient on which you run the snapshot operation is associated with the replica copy.
  • You can replicate snapshots between HPE Primera and HPE 3PAR StoreServ and vice-versa.

Considerations

  • You cannot use the revert operation on the primary snapshot or on the replica copy.
  • You cannot perform revert operations for the primary snapshot copies or replica copies.
