IBM FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R Replication Solutions

A draft IBM Redpaper publication


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 FlashSystem A9000 to another with no interference to the host.

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

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