English term or phrase: mirroring
On the NetWare servers, this included disk mirroring on the volumes, which allows for instant recovery in the event of a hard drive failure.

Thanks

Spanish translation:mirroring/operación de espejo/proceso de espejo
Explanation:
I give you first an interesting definition of mirroring:

mirroring ==>
mirror
1. <hardware, storage> Writing duplicate data to more than one device (usually two hard disks), in order to protect against loss of data in the event of device failure. This technique may be implemented in either hardware (sharing a disk controller and cables) or in software. It is a common feature of RAID systems.

Several operating systems support software disk mirroring or disk-duplexing, e.g. Novell NetWare.

See also Redundant Array of Independent Disks.

Interestingly, when this technique is used with magnetic tape storage systems, it is usually called "twinning".

A less expensive alternative, which only limits the amount of data loss, is to make regular backups from a single disk to magnetic tape.

2. <networking> An archive site or web site which keeps a copy of some or all files at another site so as to make them more quickly available to local users and to reduce the load on the source site. Such mirroring is usually done for specific whole directories or files on a specific remote server as opposed to a cache or proxy server which keeps copies of everything that is requested via it.

You could use "mirroring" as such, if your translation is aimed at specialists this will problably be the more functional solution. If it is a marketing translation you could use the solution found in microsoft site.

Espejado


Explanation:
Se trata de hacer un mirroring ( tipo de duplicacion) o en espanol 'espejado'.
VER ESTE TEXTO:
Con la aparición de Netware SFT III, Novell cumple con su promesa que, allá por 1983, hacía al definir los tres niveles de "SYSTEM FAULT TOLERANCE" de sus sistemas operativos. Es decir, un SO "non stop", resistente a cualquier tipo de falla gracias al mirroring (espejado) de file servers.

Clonación


Explanation:
Estoy bastante de acuerdo con "duplicación", pero como es una duplicación "idéntica" (mirroring creo que una sugerencia podría ser traducir por "clonación". Me parece que refleja el espírito de mirroring.

Un cordial saludo
