Data copy, Copy Data, is duplicated electronic information used for data backup.
Data copies are data generated by storage systems and used in various applications such as business continuity, test and development, disaster recovery and backup.
Keeping redundant data increases the amount of storage technology, network technology and security technology required. It affects network performance and increases the cost of data protection systems and cloud storage, and most importantly, data maintenance. Data copy management systems, whose goal is to reduce data copies and provide faster access to current and critical data, should be seen in this context.
