Continuous replication creates a copy of the data in a directory on your primary cluster, and transfers it to a directory on a second target cluster.
While continuous replication is running, Qumulo’s software will take your latest changes and replicate them without the worry of scheduling them into an existing job. With the help of Qumulo snapshots, continuous replication generates a point-in-time consistent copy of the source directory on the target cluster.
Qumulo’s file system provides continuous replication across storage clusters, whether on-premise or in the public cloud.
Replication relationships can be established on a per-directory basis for maximum flexibility. Qumulo applies smart algorithms to manage replication, so you don’t have to.
Qumulo replicates as often as practical without negatively impacting overall cluster performance. Continuous replication in the file system is one-way asynchronous as of today; that is, there’s a source and a read-only target. Changes to the source directory are propagated asynchronously to the target.
