Hello Team ,

Re: EMC VNX 5300 use which software for remote replication for block and file level

Hello Sushin,

For the remote protection suite, the software licenses are included with each protection suite, but if you intend to use RecoverPoint/SE you need to add RecoverPoint appliances to the configuration for each side (4 RPAs total for a CRR configuration).  For local protection you need to add the local protection suite which includes RecoverPoint CDP plus snaps.

RecoverPoint/SE will provide both bloack and file replication (see release notes for limitations), while Celerra provide file system granular recovery.

Hello Sushin,

Rick is out this week, so I thought I'd jump in and answer your question.     RecoverPoint/SE is now licensed by array for VNX series.   For RecoverPoint/SE CRR, you would buy a Remote Protection Suite for each array (in addition to the RecoverPoint appliances).   If you wanted to also protect local data using RecoverPoint/SE CDP, you would buy a Local Protection Suite for each array.     If you wanted to buy both the Local Protection Suite and Remote Protection Suite for both arrays, this is a RecoverPoint/SE Concurrent Local and Remote configuration.

In addition to the suites, you'd need to purchase RecoverPoint appliances for your configuration.   The minimum number of RecoverPoint appliances supported for RecoverPoint CDP is 2 and for RecoverPoint CRR and CLR is 4 - 2 at each site.
