Dynamic Multi-pathing

Veritas Dynamic Multi-pathing is a software option that is available with SFW. Dynamic Multi-pathing adds fault tolerance to disk storage by making use of multiple paths between a computer and individual disks in an attached disk storage system. Disk transfers that would have failed because of a path failure are automatically rerouted to an alternate path. With Dynamic Multi-pathing, the Veritas Enterprise Administrator console allows you to configure, manage, and obtain status information about these multiple paths. Dynamic Multi-pathing also improves performance by allowing load balancing between the multiple paths.
