You can use SnapMirror S Family Edition to replicate data between S Family storage systems.
S Family storage systems
only support the following versions of Data ONTAP
- Data ONTAP 7.2.1 S4
- Data ONTAP 7.2.1 S8
- Data ONTAP 7.2.1 S9
S Family Edition works only for asynchronous replication. When using S Family storage systems
as source and destination, you can replicate data in the following ways:
- One to another
- One to many
- Many to one
Note: When using SnapMirror S Family Edition for replicating volumes or qtrees, the maximum number of concurrent replication operations is four.
You can use the snapmirror resync command to restore data to an S Family storage system.
S Family Edition also supports replication from an S Family storage system
to a FAS series storage system
Note: In this replication relationship, the FAS series storage system is the destination. Therefore, the FAS series storage system should be using Data ONTAP 7.2.1 or later.
SnapMirror S Family Edition does not support replication from a FAS series storage system to an S Family storage system.
