Hi, I am doing some testing related to Disaster Recovery. i am new in Commvault I want to understand About periodic Classic replication , Periodic and Continuous replication. I didn't Understand how it work. 
Anyone can help me to understand. This is Backup based replication or VMware to VMware based replication
I have some questions -
1. Periodic Classic - Is this Backup level replication? for this we need backup? 
2. Periodic - Is it same as periodic classic? or it is Snapshot based Replication?
3. Continuous - For Continuous Replication Required Media agent. If we are using HSX then we need HSX both site source and DR site?
