Data ONTAP provides a variety of methods for protecting your data. These methods are based on Snapshot technology in Data ONTAP, which enables you to maintain online multiple read-only versions of LUNs per volume.
You can protect the data in your LUNs in the following ways:
- Clone LUNs from an active volume or a Snapshot copy
- Copy all LUNs from one node to another
- Restore LUNs from a Snapshot copy
- Back up LUNs through a host backup system
