A number of backup software products now offer CDP and some have the ability to integrate with array-based snapshot technology. This handbook explores why one expert believes replication, CDP and snapshots are keys to a successful data backup strategy; how virtualization gives CDP a big boost; and the many types of snapshots available today.
