As it is a software-only solution, one might say that replication software "protects like synchronous disk, with costs comparable to or less than tape".
Asynchronous replication, like synchronous replication, creates an exact copy of the local data on a remote system.
Pre-requisites: Understanding of the basic principles of synchronous transmission; knowledge of PDH transmission networks would also be advantageous.
From a cost standpoint, a synchronous approach usually requires higher bandwidth and more equipment in order to maintain acceptable performance for several reasons:
Transmission modes: Principles of asynchronous and synchronous transmission and comparison of these transmission modes
For this reason, synchronous mode is the most sensitive to network latency and bandwidth.
Utilizing Fairchild's PowerTrench(R) MOSFET technology, the high-side "control" MOSFET (FDS6298) and the low-side "synchronous" MOSFET (FDS6299S) form a chip set providing increased current density and improved efficiency in synchronous buck converter applications.
Synchronous replication closes the window on data loss completely.
