IBM FlashCopy / Volume Copy - License - for System Storage DS3512, DS3524, EXP3512
FlashCopy creates a capacity-efficient, point-in-time copy of a physical volume for data protection uses, such as file restoration and backup. A FlashCopy volume is the logical equivalent of the physical volume, but is created more quickly than a physical copy and with minimal disruption to applications and production processes. Using copy-on-write technology, FlashCopy volumes preserve data in its original form even as data in the physical (source) volume is changed. FlashCopy volumes appear and function as standard storage volumes, and restoration of a FlashCopy volume is quick and easy.Volume Copy creates a physical copy of a volume. Volume Copy is used with FlashCopy to create a physical copy of your data with minimal disruption to applications and production processes. Upon completion of the Volume Copy process, the volume can be mapped to any host and functions as a standard volume. Volume Copy can also be used to redistribute data within the DS3500 moving volumes to a different disk drive technology or RAID level.Both FlashCopy and Volume Copy are performed by DS3500 storage system, so no host server resources are used.
