 Preserves the point-in-time restartable
copy of data across a set of interrelated
volumes
Consistent
fracture of
clones /
BCVs
– Supports clones / BCVs and snapshots
– All LUNs in the set must reside in the same
array
 Restore from previously created
consistent replica
– There is no group association between the
volumes after the consistent replica is created
– A restore from a previously created consistent
replica requires host coordination
• An individual volume from the set can be restored after
momentarily stopping I/O to the source volume
• Point-in-time data from the split volume is instantly
available, while copying continues in the background

Exchange Exchange Exchange
server
server
server
 Exchange databases are architected based
on restore capability
– Slow restore performance limits size of
Exchange databases
– Requires multiple smaller databases
 Backup application reads / writes from disk
instead of tape
SAN
– Backup and restore onsite to disk
– Better restore performance with disk
enables larger databases
Benefits
 Build larger Exchange databases
 Reduce number of Exchange
databases and licensing charges
 Reduce number of Exchange servers
 Offer higher service levels to users
