Data Reduction: Realizing the Benefits of Deduplication and Compression
Data deduplication and compression are pretty standard features in backups nowadays, but should you jump on the train just because everyone is doing it? Well, probably, because dedupe can provide hefty savings, whether in disk or storage space, or avoided capacity purchases - but you should know everything you can about deduplication & compression technologies before implementing them.
In this report, find a comprehensive breakdown of dedupe & compression technologies, and learn how to discern the differences in various vendors' offerings. Read on to explore the ins and outs of these data reduction techs, including:
- Dedupe and compression in primary, secondary and tertiary storage
- Source, target and hybrid deduplication
- File-level vs. block-level & fixed block, variable-block and sliding window dedupe
- Implementation, best practices and recommendations
- And much, much more!
