CLARiiON Offers Remote Mirroring

The CLARiiON Advanced Storage Division of Data General Corp. today announced CLARiiON Remote Mirroring, a set of hardware, software, and services designed to safeguard corporate information assets against severe outages, including natural disasters and equipment and power failures. This is the first in a series of storage-centric solutions that CLARiiON plans to offer.

CLARiiON Remote Mirroring, available on the "SAN-ready" FC5700 Fibre Channel RAID disk arrays as well as on the FC5500 and C3500 Series, provides data duplication services at a remote site, which can be located up to 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) from the primary data center.

CLARiiON Remote Mirroring includes hardware and software, as well as consulting, design and implementation services, enabling businesses to customize the data protection approach for their environments. The solution is available today on servers running Sun Solaris and Microsoft Windows NT operating systems, with IBM-AIX and HP-UX support to follow shortly.

In contrast to other available solutions, CLARiiON Remote Mirroring employs already-installed host-based mirroring packages, such as Sun Enterprise Volume Manager and Windows NT Disk Administrator. In addition, CLARiiON Remote Mirroring is compatible with industry-standard third-party packages, such as Veritas Volume Manager.

CLARiiON Remote Mirroring is available in two options:

  • Standard - Supports mirrored storage over distances of up to 30 kilometers by creating a separate storage zone at a remote site with duplicate host and storage configurations at each site
  • High-Availability - Standard configuration plus dual links between sites
