One of the most critical factors in selecting a mirroring solution is the ability to ensure the integrity of the data being replicated between sites.
In a synchronous mirroring approach, all data (whether corrupt or not) is immediately replicated to the secondary storage device.
We can expand a simple remote synchronous mirroring installation into a complete storage disaster recovery configuration.
Now, the combination of lower-cost disk arrays and new mirroring technologies, such as SAN fliers from ONStor, will greatly reduce the expense and complexity of SAN-based replication and will bring its benefits to the open systems arena.
Or, mirroring two RAID-5 arrays together allows one mirror to take all IO activity while the other undergoes parity rebuild.
True disk-based mirroring uses the intelligence of the disk subsystem to make mirror images of the data residing on its surfaces.
