Enabling CDP, the New Dimension in Remote Storage Management for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
With Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) and optical networking technologies maturing, a wider array of research and education enterprises are able to cost-effectively implement sophisticated storage services at extended distances using various protocols. Today, disaster recovery and business continuity are strongly entrenched as essential capabilities in enterprise storage strategies. Continuous data protection (CDP) and new protocol standards like FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) represents the newest dimension in remote storage management.
CDP relies on disk technology to continuously capture data updates in real time. As data is written to disk, it is simultaneously written in a second location and time-stamped. CDP
