RecoverPoint with SANTap is a very powerful solution for local and remote data replication for many environments. Understanding the communications between RecoverPoint and the SANTap feature is a critical part of the analysis for a RecoverPoint solution. Once what is required for the solution and how data flows through the network is understood, designing and deploying a RecoverPoint with SANTap solution will become much easier. There are software limitations within SANTap and RecoverPoint that improve with each release. These limitations are available in this document and in the RecoverPoint Release Notes, available at the EMC Powerlink website: http://powerlink.emc.com.
