Protecting databases by backing up, replicating, and archiving

SnapManager provides rapid online backup of databases using Snapshot technology that is part of Data ONTAP. When you define your backup options, you can increase your data protection by replicating Snapshot copies using SnapMirror and by archiving Snapshot copies using SnapVault. An alternative is to archive backups to third-party tape devices.

You need to complete preparatory steps before you use SnapMirror and SnapVault.
