Data Reduction: Realizing the Benefits of Deduplication and Compression
sponsored by Dell and VMware

Deduplication and compression of primary and secondary data bring many benefits to an organization. Whether it’s saving on the amount of disk space consumed by the backup process or on expenditures for additional storage capacity, the data reduction market is growing. It is becoming a necessary capability for most organizations when they look for backup software.

There is confusion, however, in how different vendors implement their data deduplication – whether inline or post-processing is better, whether data should be compressed in variable length or fixed length blocks, and what the advantages of compressing data from the get-go are.

This report and the accompanying data reduction survey dispel that confusion and lay out the best practices and implementation recommendations for data deduplication and compression.
