Expert Comparison: Software, Hardware and Blended Approaches to Deduplication
Until recently, organizations had to choose between hardware and software deduplication. But now they can leverage the strengths (and eliminate some of the trade-offs) of each with a multi-faceted approach.
This e-guide recaps the compelling benefits of both hardware and software-based deduplication and explores scenarios where it may be advantageous to use them together. It also describes how virtual tape libraries (VTL) support integrated deduplication, which serves to improve dedupe functionality and minimize its potential impact on server performance.
