SnapMirror in Disaster Recovery scenario – NetApp 7-mode screen-cast

I have created kind of “part 2” of my previous screen-cast (How SnapMirror works). In this one I start with already existing snapmirror relationship between primary and secondary site. I have written short batch file that is simulating business critical application, which is, of course, using NetApp share. Once the application is up-and-running I simulate the ‘disaster’ of primary site and show you how you can recover from disaster, using your DR (secondary) site, together with SnapMirror technology.

During the video I’m also explaining, on the example, what is RPO and RTO. More theory about those two you can find in this post: RPO and RTO – Understanding the difference
