EMC Replication Manager eliminates most scripting and manual mapping of filesystems and applications to storage and replaces them with an intuitive point-and-click interface, pull-down menus, and wizards. It looks and feels like many familiar web-enabled applications. Because of this simplicity and the policy-based management this solution implements, Replication Manager functions can be initiated and used by the IT staff responsible for applications and not necessarily by storage or replication experts. Multiple user roles with varying privileges enable self-sufficiency within the organization. This enables much more productive use of an organization's limited resources to respond to all the critical tasks that add value to a business.
EMC Replication Manager relies upon disk-based replicas (snap, clone, or mirror copies) as the foundation of the recovery operation. Replicas can now be used for backup acceleration and restoration of table spaces and filesystems, or for simplifying and automating data refresh
