    Snapshot Operations
      Snapshot Create
    Snapshot is created instantaneously from Master volume.

    Snapshot Delete
    Recovery of snapshot disk area through the deletion of old snapshots.

    Snapshot Restore
    Master volume is restored instantaneously from the any generation of snapshot.
    Link Volume
     One of the best features is the Link volume to give indirect access to an application with a snap. The created volume is accessing in writing the snap and as well the Master Volume, limited to test purpose (the Master Volume is obviously not updated).
    Snapshot Configuration rules
     The snapshot reserved area is available on RAID5 and RAID6.
    Snap area zone should be allocated according to Master volume size. Example: MV is 2 TB, for 8 generations, allow 20% for snap reserved area.
    Business application and back-up application should be located in different servers.
    Master Volume and Replication Volume can be located on all types of RAID and pool.
