Defining Availability and Disaster Recovery
¡ High Availability (HA) refers to eliminating the business impact & downtime due to a hardware failure – RAID-DP – Active-Active controllers
¡

¡ Continuous Availability extends HA by providing protection from external events such as power, cooling and network failures, eliminating planned and unplanned downtime and data loss – NetApp MetroCluster ¡ Disaster Recovery provides site resiliency protecting against failures that affect an entire datacenter – NetApp SnapMirror

However.

You want to use the network bandwidth for other purposes such as client access or applications without purchasing additional bandwidth. thereby freeing up network bandwidth for other purposes. it is possible to reduce the bandwidth consumed by SnapMirror without sacrificing RPO.
