In this Technology Adoption Profile we explore the current state of replication in SMB IT departments and in particular the use of SAN-based replication. We find strong demand for both synchronous and asynchronous SAN-based replication, as well as the need to replicate data within the SMBís own data center facilities, either to a colocated secondary array or to one within 5 km [approximately 3 miles](a campus or metro-style deployment). We also find that in order for SMBs to protect more data using replication, they need replication solutions that are non-disruptive, easy to use, and inexpensive.
