Data deduplication is the process of examining data to identify any redundancy. The same data keeps getting backed up over and over again, consuming more storage space and impacting cost—thereby creating a chain of inefficiency. Rather than duplicate a copy of the same file, a pointer can be used to go to a previously stored version, reducing the physical capacity needed for a backup job. Our featured guest speakers for this chat include Greg White, Dell / EMC storage marketing manager for Global Commercial Marketing, Sanjeet Singh, and Paul Davis from Dell’s Product Group, as well as Darin Camp from CommVault.
You may be considering adding deduplication into your environment, or you may have just heard all the buzz about it and want to know more about the specifics of deduplication. This chat discusses deduplication in a backup setting and how it helps make the cost of backup to disk approach the cost of backup to tape.
