Using file replication

Replication and Disaster Recovery Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

File replication provides a mechanism, manual or automatic, for copying or relocating both file data and file system metadata. Hitachi NAS Platforms support replication of data and, when using the transfer of primary access feature, of file system settings. When using replication with the transfer of primary access feature, you can relocate file system data and CNS links, SMB shares, permissions and all other file-level metadata. Administrators can use NAS Manager to configure policy-based replication jobs independently from other backup strategies.

This section provides a deeper conceptual understanding of the components of data replication and instructions for configuring and implementing replication.
