IBM® FlashSystem A9000 and IBM FlashSystem® A9000R provide copy functions suited for various data protection scenarios that enable you to enhance your business continuance, disaster recovery, data migration, and backup solutions. These functions allow point-in-time copies, known as snapshots, and also include remote copy capabilities in either synchronous or asynchronous mode.

Furthermore, support for IBM Hyper-Scale Mobility enables a seamless migration of volumes from one IBM FlashSystem A9000 to another with no interference to the host.

This IBM Redpaper™ publication is intended for anyone who needs a detailed and practical understanding of the IBM FlashSystem A9000 and IBM FlashSystem A9000R replication functions.

This publication describes replication only for the IBM FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R; it does not describe replication for the other members of the IBM Spectrum™ Accelerate family.
