In addition to providing a network share that saves content to local disk and the cloud, XenData Cloud File Gateway can be used to mirror primary storage, creating a data protection copy of the primary storage. By running the mirroring software overnight, for example, all of the changes that occurred in the day will be replicated on the XenData hybrid cloud storage system.

There are many third party utilities that can provide file system mirroring. We have certified two approaches – one using the mirroring capabilities of Beyond Compare and the other using Robocopy. Details on how to implement these alternative approaches are available in the following Tech Notes:
