Deduplication: Effectively Reducing the Cost of Backup and Storage

Deduplication: Effectively Reducing the Cost of Backup and Storage


Organizations have to backup and store data. Compliance requirements demand that data be stored for periods of time. Productivity demands that data is available in case of disaster or accidental loss of work. Unfortunately, meeting those demands is getting more and more expensive as the amount of data that has to be backed up and stored multiplies. Reducing the cost of backup and storage starts with reducing the amount of data that is backed up and stored. Data deduplication ensures that the same, unchanged files are not repeatedly backed up during nightly processes. Reducing storage capacity alone is a strong argument for implementing data deduplication, but when integrated with server-based backup processes that also include data compression, the combined backup and storage savings are compelling.
