Wide area network mirroring and replication

One of the easiest ways to protect vital data is to mirror (or copy) the data to a second location. If one copy fails, the second copy can be used. In many cases, data is mirrored locally in a storage array using a RAID 0 disk group, but this basic replication method does not offer any protection against disasters. This chapter of the WAN expansion guide focuses on remote mirroring and replication.
