White Paper: The New Generation Of De-duplication Technology Offers Clustered Architecture And Linear Performance AggregationSource: Strategic Storage Solutions
This white paper explains how VTL with SIR reduces storage and replication bandwidth requirements with unique features such as clustered architecture and linear performance aggregation.
IT managers and executives face explosive data growth, driving up costs for primary storage as well as storage for backup and disaster recovery (DR). Each time a full backup is performed, it contains many of the same files and data as prior full backups, leading to multiple copies of the same data, taking up valuable disk capacity. The same applies to duplicate data within a backup job, across servers, and across backup jobs (full and incremental) over time.
Data de-duplication is an advanced form of data reduction that can dramatically reduce the amount of backup data stored. This technology tremendously improves the economics of disk-based backup approaches by reducing stored data, changing the way data is protected. It is regarded as the next evolutionary step in backup technology, and a "must-have" for today's data center administrators.
