TimeImage

An exact reproduction of a specified Consistency Group at a specific point in time. When the RealTime server generates a TimeImage view, that image is made available via new virtual host-side TimeImage volumes. A SAN host, used specifically as the TimeImage host, can access the TimeImage view just as if it were the up-to-date RealTime server Consistency Group, and can manipulate the TimeImage Consistency Group. However, the TimeImage view is completely independent of the up-to-date Consistency Group maintained in the MirrorStore volume.
