VERITAS Cluster Server - Disaster Recovery Fire Drill

Disaster Recovery Fire Drill is a feature of VERITAS Cluster Server that allows users to anticipate and address issues within their DR plan prior to encountering an actual disaster

VERITAS Disaster Recovery Fire Drill effectively creates a carbon copy of live production data on a designated Disaster Recovery host and automates complete application testing against the copy.

The Fire Drill feature utilizes replication/mirroring snapshots and initiates the startup and shutdown of applications to test the snapped copy. Users no longer need to worry about functionality of the disaster recovery capability of the cluster, as automated testing and reporting can be accomplished with the click of a button.
