Archiware P5 Synchronize lets you replicate data to ensure high availability. Servers, RAIDs or SANs are cloned and immediately accessible as failover. With P5’s browser interface, synchronization is set up within minutes. Its also includes (X)San and FSEvents support for optimized workflows.
Maximum data availability – no restore required
P5 Synchronize automatically detects modified files and synchronizes them to a target destination.
Continuous Data Protection reduces the risk of data loss. For maximum availability, synchronized files are immediately available. No restore is required. In case of emergency, production can continue immediately using the cloned data.
P5 Synchronize can keep file versions and multiple snapshots, with these previous versions available in addition to the most up to date data clone. Snapshots of the whole file system can keep even more data available. In update mode, copies of only new and modified files are made. Required disk space and network traffic is reduced. By using hard links your storage space is used most efficiently.
P5’s filters can easily be used to include or exclude files from synchronization; you can synchronize only selected files name, size, age etc.
Simple Distribution of Data
P5 Synchronize allows internal as well as external data transfers, therefore providing new means of communication and workflow organization. P5 Synchronize distributes data automatically to different locations, easily setting a clone of your data for distribution to partners, branches or agencies.
Moving files, even between heterogeneous systems, can be done within the shortest possible time frame. After synchronization, files can be deleted automatically from the source.
File System Snapshots
Since version 5.3, the Synchronize Module supports a powerful functionality of modern file systems such as ZFS or BtrFS, which is creating a snapshot of the status quo of data. These functionalities are special in that they use very little ressources.
Snapshots can be created instantly and the required storage space matches the amount of data that has changed. This functionality enables the user to keep and provide multiple cycles of synchronized data.
