Data deduplication has quickly moved from a "nice-to-have" to a "must-have" technology for those organizations trying to keep pace with relentless data growth. Organizations surveyed by ESG are citing difficulty keeping up with storage capacity demands, while also reporting flat or decreasing IT budgets. With data deduplication, redundant data in the backup process is identified and eliminated, creating savings in valuable storage capacity and, importantly, in constrained IT budgets.

When ESG asked respondents to a recent survey to identify what they consider to be the most important criteria in the evaluation and selection of deduplication technology, several factors were revealed. Not surprisingly, the cost of the solution was the most frequently-cited factor (although savings garnered from capacity reduction often overcomes financial objections to deploying deduplication).
