Deduplication: Trends, Predictions, and Usage Best Practices
If you are backing up, then you need to be using deduplication technology, period. As rapidly as production data is growing, traditional backup storage typically grows at 3 to 4 times that amount – requiring a certain amount of production data. Without deduplication, more production data is required in order to keep up with incremental changes.
Through deduplication delivered from Data Domain appliances and an entire ecosystem of backup technologies, EMC is improving efficiency, enabling customers to spend less time and money on backup and recovery. EMC continues to invest in the extensibility of its Data Domain platform and DD Boost software.
