DDP Mirror models use a MAID architecture (Massive Array of Idle Disks) to save energy. Intended to complement the Standalone DDP Series, users can leverage Asset Management and Archive solutions to duplicate data.This is an extremely effective, but much less expensive, solution when it comes to Disaster Recovery. The Mirror DDP models will spin the hard drives down to idle when not in use to save energy. Mirror DDPs are an efficient, cost-effective way to maintain backups and data integrity.

Instant Replication takes Disaster Recovery and Redundancy to the next level. With the intelligence of the Ardis AVFS driver and the flexibility and performance of iSCSI, client computers can now initiate 'Instant Replication' of data without having to rely on other backend servers and scripts to duplicate data.

With Instant Replication, client-initiated writes are duplicated in real time to another DDP in a Cluster configuration with Data Locations set to Mirror. Using this method, data is mirrored in real-time to a device that can be extracted from the Cluster and used independently in another location. Instant Replication is an perfect solution for TV & Broadcast environments where 24/7/365 data availability is a must.
