Enabling Data Footprint Reduction: Storage Capacity Optimization
Organizations of all sizes are all encountering some amount of growing data footprint that needs to be addressed immediately. Given that different applications and data types require different approaches, multiple data footprint impact reduction tools/techniques are needed in your strategy.
In this specially released chapter of “Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking,” author Greg Schulz takes a closer look at today’s different data footprint reduction (DFR) techniques, their characteristics, caveats and benefits to address your growing data needs. Read on to discover:
• Why to use different technologies for different applications and service needs
• Evaluating DFR technologies: Archiving, compression, deduplication, tiered storage and thin provisioning
• DFR techniques, best practices and use cases
• Deduplication fundamentals: How and where to implement
