Example embodiments of the present invention provide a method, an apparatus and a computer-program product for bandwidth management in a metro-cluster data replication environment. The method includes receiving an I/O at a first site and replicating the I/O from the first site to a second site by synchronous replication. Load balancing is then determined between the first site and the second site. Respective portions of the I/O then may be replicated from at least one of the first site and the second site to a third site by asynchronous replication according to the load balancing.
