Array-based replication is an approach to data backup in which compatible storage arrays use
built-in software to automatically copy data from one storage array to another.
Array-based replication software runs on one or more storage controllers resident in disk storage systems, synchronously
replicating data between similar storage array models at the logical unit number (LUN) or volume block level. The term can refer
to the creation of local copies of data within the same array as the source data, as well as
the creation of remote copies in an array situated off site.
