Veritas FlashSnap is a multi-step process that allows you to create independently addressable snapshot volumes that are copies or mirrors of the volumes on your server. These snapshot volumes can be easily moved to another server for backup or other purposes, such as loading or updating data warehouses or performing application testing with real production data while business continues.

FlashSnap makes use of FastResync, several Snapshot commands, and the Dynamic Disk Group Split and Join commands.
