Advanced Copy function Partial copying - QuickOPC

QuickOPC initially copies all the business data volume to a copy volume.
Subsequently, it only copies updates that occur on the business volume (the differences).
This has the effect of reducing copying time, particularly with large databases, making high-speed backup operation possible.
Both the business volume and the copy volume have the same data size. This process is especially suited to backup operations on mission critical databases where robust data security is essential.


Applicable Operation

  • Backup operations, particularly with large databases, that need to be processed in a reduced time.
  • Creating a backup of the data that is updated in small amounts.
  • Performing system test data replication.
  • Restoration from a backup.


  • Using QuickOPC, physical copying after the initial full copy significantly reduces the time required and the effect on business operation.
