Stored data is susceptible to disaster, either through hardware failure or environmental catastrophe. You can use mirroring technology on Infinite Volumes to create an identical second set of data to replace the primary set of data, in case something happens to the primary set of data.
You can create a data protection mirror relationship from a source Infinite Volume on one cluster to a destination Infinite Volume on a different cluster to provide asynchronous disaster recovery. Infinite Volumes support bidirectional data exchange between two sites and multiple-mirror fanout deployments.
You cannot create a data protection mirror relationship between two Infinite Volumes on the same cluster, and you cannot create a data protection mirror relationship between a FlexVol volume and an Infinite Volume.
