Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
Continuous data protection (CDP) is an approach to recovery that continuously, or nearly continuously, captures and transmits changes to files or blocks of data while journaling these changes. This capability provides the option to recover to many more-granular points in time to minimize data loss, and enables arbitrary recovery points. Some CDP solutions can be configured to either capture data continuously (true CDP) or at scheduled times (near CDP).
