Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.1 and later
Sun Storage Availability Suite - Version 4.0 to 4.0 [Release 3.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Sun Storage Availability Suite is marketed as Oracle's StorageTek[TM] Availability Suite (AVS) and incorporates two distinct modules :

- Remote Mirror (RM) also known as StoreEdge Network Data Replication (SNDR) or Remote Data Copy (RDC)
- Point-in-Time Copy (PiTC) also known as Instant Image (II)

Remote Mirror is used to replicate disks, disk slices and logical volumes across a network to a remote server.
Point-in-Time Copy is used to snapshot/copy disks, disk slices and logical volumes locally.
