Posting for a customer.

Currently they replicate between site A to site B using snapmirror async (bith site netwall 3140s)

Now they want also to setup an additional replication from site A to site C and this site C is having a EMC storage.

Are there any replication software/external devices available to do this job?

NetApp answer to this is the V-Series, its a gateway controller, allowing clients to get NetApp features while keeping current storage investment.

Have a look at http://www.netapp.com/us/products/storage-systems/v-series/

Hi,

What EMC storage do they have in site C, Symmetrix or Clariion? Didn't they get Replication Manager free with the storage ?

Anyhow wrt vseries,

for symmetrix: http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/ontap/rel801/pdfs/V-Series/ig_emc_dmx.pdf

for Clariion: http://now.netapp.com/NOW/knowledge/docs/ontap/rel7261_vs/pdfs/V-Series/ig_emc_cx.pdf

But, as you say currently they already are replicating between site A and B, not sure whether this would help you.

Thanks,

  Arun
