Polyserve OS Access

Will Polyserve allow OS access and physical drive letters or mount points so that a host replication product like Storage Mirror can be used to migrate data from one EVA to a new one?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
Polyserve CFS seems to be transparent to the OSes (Windows/Linux).

For the host based replication maybe this could be useful note:
All LUNs Must Be Mounted Symmetrically Across the Cluster

Maybe this could be useful as well to see that it works with the HW based replication, e.g. EVA:

the pain is one part of the reality

Re: Polyserve OS Access

The polyserve software runs on a standard windows or Linux OS so backup or file replication tools on one node in the cluster should be able to access files on a Z drive or mount point for replication.

Polyserve Linux 3.7 actually has a new replication feature where it can replicate new files from one cluster to another cluster across the network.
