If you have a CDP 3.0 Enterprise Server installed and regularly process replication of sensitive and important data, you already back up to a CDP 3.0 Disk Safe. Backed by Atomic Commit and ACID transactions, the CDP 3.0 Disk Safe provides industrial-strength protection for your data; however, as hardware, the CDP Server itself is still susceptible to crashes due to hardware failure, virus attack, etc.
To be prepared for such an event, you can run a secondary CDP Server, thus enabling you to protect the machine on which your primary CDP Server installed. The function that allows you to do this is called Multi-Point Replication and is built into your CDP 3.0 Enterprise Server.
Configuring secondary replication for additional protection is easy to do. Once you have installed a CDP Agent on your primary CDP Enterprise Server machine, you can leverage CDP 3.0’s multi-point replication feature to make a copy of the open Disk Safe(s) from your primary CDP Server. The selected Disk Safe(s) can then be replicated to your secondary CDP Server (a unique replication schedule can be configured for each CDP Server). For even greater protection, the copy of your Disk Safe(s) can be replicated to an off-site CDP Server, giving you both on-site and off-site backups.
