Cross-platform Data Sharing (CDS) allows the sharing of data between heterogeneous systems where each system has direct access to the physical devices used to hold the data. Sharing in this manner requires the capability to share the devices at various levels in the software hierarchy.
Veritas Volume Replicator (VVR) is now CDS compliant. VVR uses CDS format to support the following functionality:
The Storage Replicator Log (SRL) is created in a CDS format. Starting with the 5.0 release, the SRL is created in the CDS format, regardless of the disk group type. When you upgrade from a previous release of VVR to 5.0, the upgrade process dissociates the SRL and creates a new SRL in CDS format.
