Secrets to Shrinking Your Storage for VMware

Secrets to Shrinking Your Storage for VMware

Cover
VMware has helped organizations achieve big savings in server capital costs. Unfortunately, it has also drastically increased storage capacity requirements. This white paper explores this caveat and explains how real IT shops have managed to achieve space capacity savings in the virtualized data center. You'll learn how deduplication functionality enables you to reduce storage requirements with these capabilities:

  • Deduplicate data residing on both new and existing applications
  • Launch the deduplication process manually, or when the data capacity reaches a certain threshold
  • Deduplicate data on primary production storage volumes as well as data being backed up or remotely replication to secondary backup or archival volumes
