Data Replay

Definition - What does Data Replay mean?

Data replay is a stream of continuous snapshots of data that is designed to allow data to be replayed to aid in data backup and recovery. Data disaster recovery software uses data replay technology. Data replay is generally used in businesses as well as for disaster recovery when using remote replication technology to recover lost data that occurs as a result of natural disasters or even terrorism. Data replay is a form of data retrieval as well as a method to ensure data integrity.

Data replay may also be known as continuous snapshots, data instant replay and snapshot replication.

Techopedia explains Data Replay

Data replay is made possible by taking continuous snapshots of data for later replay. Unlimited snapshots can be scheduled in order to recover application data in an extremely speedy fashion, even seconds. Data replay can help prevent critical data corruption as well as data being skipped over during backup and recovery processes.
