AFA platforms offer significant opportunity to deliver on the promise of snapshot technology: to provide read-only & read/write snapshots that can be created rapidly, are space efficient, deliver performance consistent with that of source volumes regardless of the number, and be retained for long periods without performance impacts. Also:
- open up new ways to improve classic snapshot-based workflows
- protect against logical data corruption
- enabling better offload processing, & optimizing bulk provisioning
