There's no denying that data deduplication can bring enormous savings in backup disk space. By assigning a unique identifier to chunks of data and discarding identical instances that come after them, deduping can reduce the need for disk capacity by up to 90% or more.

And while deduping can certainly translate to more cash in your pocket, the decision regarding which dedupe solution to use and where can be a difficult one to make.

This E-Guide will help walk you through that process, outlining the various types of deduplication that are available today and exploring the benefits associated with each. You'll learn the basics of dedupe, its implementation, and after reading you'll be able to answer the following questions:

  • Should you implement software or hardware dedupe?

  • What types of data do you want to deduplicate?

  • Can you dedupe your primary data?

  • What complications are there of using deduplication in a virtualised
    server environment?
