The article provides information on the advantages of storage system-based asynchronous replication. Asynchronous replication supports business continuity, content distribution, data migrations, load balancing, and testing and development. High-end storage systems provide multiple ways to implement asynchronous replication. By using any storage system's asynchronous replication technology, there is considerable variation among products related to the degree of flexibility users have in their choice of storage systems, what replication configurations are supported and how well the storage systems manage the asynchronous replication process.
