Improving Deduplication Performance in Virtual Environments with Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3
Organizations of all sizes are looking to move away from traditional and costly backup technologies. Such methods back up data indiscriminately, failing to differentiate between new and previously saved data. This is particularly problematic in remote offices, where the transfer of all backup data to a central office wastes time, WAN bandwidth and storage resources. To overcome these issues, companies are now looking to source deduplication.
Source deduplication only backs up new or changed data, saving time and money while improving bandwidth utilization and storage efficiency. Check out this white paper for an introduction to source dedupe and a list of the benefits it can provide. In this paper you will see several real-world scenarios in which source dedupe is utilized to solve the challenges associated with older, obsolete backup methods, and learn about the differences between deduping in a physical and virtual environment.
