Snapmirror and Snapvault which one is faster and which one requires more bandwidth?

I know differences between these two in general, one is ofr DR, the other for backup.

Can you please tell me which one will be faster to replicate data, and which one would require more bandwidth? For  instance, 150Mb bandwidth, which one will be more suitable?

Thank you!

Re: Snapmirror and Snapvault which one is faster and which one requires more bandwidth?

Essentially they use the same process - a snapvault is a qtree snapmirror.

For performance improvements you can look at network compression, data compression and data deduplication. Snapvault does not take advantage of data compression / deduplication though you can run it after it has reached the destination. A volume snapmirror would take advantage of data compression / deduplication savings.
