Volumes are assigned to volume pools. To assist with recovery, create and use offsite volume pools that match your data usage (that is, the type of data). For example, if you maintain a customer database, you may want to restore all of your customer database at the same time if you recover from a disaster. Assign all of your customer database backup data to an offsite volume pool specifically for that data. Assign only backup images of the customer database to that offsite volume pool.
