GiantLoop Testing Records 72 Percent Edge for VERITAS
The demands of competition, governmental regulation and security now
require organizations to have not only a solid backup plan and set up
local availability clusters, but also to replicate critical information
to remote sites as part of a comprehensive disaster recovery solution.
Replication allows either a real-time or near real-time replica or copy
of data to exist at an alternate location which can reduce or eliminate
potential data loss and dramatically speed application and data recovery
in a disaster scenario. There are many replication approaches available
on the market today which make deciding on a replication technology a
In order to ease the decision, The GiantLoop Testing and Certification
(GTAC) Lab evaluated the usability and performance of enterprise data
replication solutions based on VERITAS and EMC data replication
technologies. The basic requirements for a data replication solution to
be considered "enterprise-class" are that the solution must be stable,
scalable, high-performance, include complete fail-over protection, and
have no single point-of-failure.
Based on independent testing performed by GTAC and documented in the
GiantLoop Performance results VERITAS Volume Manager[TM] and VERITAS
Volume Replicator[TM] software mirrors data to a secondary location as
much as 72 percent faster than SRDF replication software from EMC Corp
and at a fraction of the cost.
