Understanding the VVR snapshot feature

VVR enables you to create an image of the online data volumes, at a given point in time and such an image is referred to as a snapshot. The data in the original volume may change; however, the snapshot can still be used as a stable and independent copy for various purposes, including the following tasks:


You can use the snapshot feature on the Primary and the Secondary host.

The snapshot feature in VVR is the same as the snapshot feature in VxVM, because VVR is fully integrated with VxVM. In VVR, an RVG is a group of VxVM volumes; therefore, taking a snapshot of an RVG is the same as taking a snapshot of the data volumes in the RVG. VVR enables you to create traditional and instant snapshots.
