Understanding Data Replication

Oracle Solaris Cluster software supports host-based and application-based data replication.

  • Host-based data replication uses software to replicate disk volumes between geographically dispersed clusters in real time. An example of host-based replication software used for replication between clusters, or between a cluster and a host that is not in a cluster, is the ZFS snapshots feature of Oracle Solaris.

    For more information about using host-based data replication between two clusters, see Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Replication Guide for ZFS Snapshots.
