Snapshot capacity ?

Hi all,

I really interest about Replicate technology of Nimble and i have some issues not understand clear about snapshot space. The first issue, where snapshot hold when they replicated between 2 site ?

Example : i have 2 storage, storage A have 1 Volume 1TB and storage B have 1 Volume 1TB. and they have replicate together so where snapshots will hold ?

as i understand each Volume will hold snapshots of partner on own Volume.

when storage A dead. so i clone snapshot from volume B to restore database and how capacity of this clone will base ?

They will full clone volume 1TB or they just clone real space data on this volume ?
