Local Volume Clone (QClone)
Local volume clone (QClone) is used to make a duplicate copy of a volume in the same storage pool as well as in a separate storage pool within the same enclosure. In setting up a local clone task, the first clone is a full copy. From that point on, the cloning is a differential copy, created using QSAN’s snapshot functionality. Manual and scheduled tasks are available for management flexibility. In the event that the source volume fails, IT managers can quickly switch to the cloned volume and resume data services.
