Rapid Recovery Snapshot, an Intel RAID premium feature, is a software application that enhances the data protection provided by using Intel RAID controllers. Snapshot functionality allows users to capture source volume data changes. This can be particularly useful in the event that accidental or malicious data deletion or application corruption occurs. While traditional overnight backup methods create physical copies of data for offsite or archival purposes, Rapid Recovery Snapshot makes it easy to implement more frequent backups and reduces recovery time. By supplementing traditional backup schemes with Rapid Recovery Snapshot, IT organizations can greatly enhance their level of business continuity, data protection and restore capabilities.
