What Is CDP Backup?
Continuous Data Protection (CDP) will store data backup at the specified intervals set as per our back up policy. We can restore the backed up data from the available restore points on request. As per our back up policy we take CDP backup once in a 24 hours cycle.
How Does It Work?
First time Continuous Data Protection application creates a replica of all the contents on disk to a disk based backup repository. After this initial replica the CDP uses a volume filter device driver to track block level deltas between scheduled synchronizations. The next scheduled backup operation involves creating a point in time snapshot and reading the deltas as tracked by the volume filter device driver. Synchronizations can be scheduled as frequently as every 15 minutes, 1 day, specific week day etc. for an entire server. CDP uses Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service to take a point in time snapshot and a proprietary Linux kernel module in Linux OS. For more information refer following URL:
