Replication in computing involves sharing information so as to ensure consistency between redundant resources, such as software or hardware components, to improve reliability, fault-tolerance , or accessibility.

A computational task is typically replicated in space , i.e. executed on separate devices, or it could be replicated in time , if it is executed repeatedly on a single device. Replication in space or in time is often linked to scheduling algorithms [1]

The access to a replicated entity is typically uniform with access to a single, non-replicated entity. The replication itself should be transparent to an external user. Also, in a failure scenario, a failover of replicas is hidden as much as possible. The latter refers to data replication with respect to Quality of Service (QoS) aspects. [2]

Storage Replica is perhaps one of the most overlooked new features in Windows Server 2016. This important disaster-preparedness and recovery feature protects your data by implementing synchronous volume replication between clusters or servers.

It also helps to implement asynchronous replication needed to create failover clusters for two sites, keeping all the nodes in sync.
