 ### Data-Center Replication
+In previous releases, Accumulo only operated withing the constraints of a single installation.
+Because single instances of Accumulo often consist of many nodes and Accumulo's design scales
+efficiently across many nodes, it is typical that one Accumulo is run per physical installation
+or data-center. [ACCUMULO-378][ACCUMULO-378] introduces support in Accumulo to automatically
+copy data from one Accumulo instance to another.
+This data-center replication feature is directly applicable for users wishing to implement
+a disaster recovery strategy. Data can be automatically sent from a primary instance to one
+or more other Accumulo instances. Conversely to normal Accumulo operation in which ingest
+query are strongly consistent, replication is a lazy, eventually consistent operation. This
+is desirable for replication as it prevent additional latency for ingest operations on the
+primary instance. Additionally, outages between the primary instance and replicas can sustain
+prolonged outages without any administrative overhead.
+The Accumulo User Manual contains a [new chapter on replication][replication] which covers
+in better detail the design and implementation of the feature, how users can configure replication
+and special cases to consider when choosing to integrate the feature into a user application.
