Data deduplication tools promise to reduce the transfer and storage of redundant data, which optimizes network bandwidth and storage capacity. Storing data more efficiently on disk lets you retain data for longer periods or "recapture" data to protect more applications with disk-based backup, increasing the likelihood that data can be recovered rapidly. Transferring less data over the network also improves performance. Reducing the data transferred over a WAN connection may allow organizations to consolidate backup from remote locations or extend disaster recovery to data that wasn't previously protected.
This e-guide explains how data deduping can save organizations time and money by enabling more data recovery from disk and reducing the footprint and power and cooling requirements of secondary storage. Continue reading to learn more about using data deduplication tool in disk backup.
