Recoverpoint with XtremIO at target side w/o Snap Based on Source Side
So I am trying to replicate from VNX w/o snap based replication capability to XtremIO X2 do I have to create journal volumes according to best practice on target side since the replication mode wont allow Snap Based and hence cant use minimum journal size on XtremIo ?
Re: Recoverpoint with XtremIO at target side w/o Snap Based on Source Side
Snap-based replication is always used for XtremIO (if in prod and/or in replica). In your case, Unity would be using a splitter but replicating to XtremIO would mean that each PiT corrosponds to a snap on the array side, therefore a minimal journal can be used on the replica side.
For more info, refer to he RecoverPoint Replicating XtremIO arrays WP and the RP with XtremIO Technnote, both available on support.emc.com.
Hope that helps,
