In the 8.1.13 release, IBM Spectrum Protect extended their support for #disasterrecovery and #dataavailability, if a source replication server is unavailable, by replicating the data to two target replication servers. In this case, one of the target replication servers can be converted to a source replication server. The data from the newly established source replication server can then be backed up to another target replication server to help provide uninterrupted #dataprotection.
Storage rules and subrulesThe #replication operation not only copies the data to the target replication server but also communicates the metadata, such as attributes of the source server nodes and file spaces. By using storage rules and subrules you can control the granularity of what is replicated to which IBM Spectrum Protect target server. For example, to send data from a source replication server to two target replication servers, you would define two replication storage rules. By defining multiple replication storage rules, you can schedule, configure, and run the rules independently.
