Back up more data with less disk space
Until now, the only way to capture, store, and effectively retain constantly growing amounts of enterprise data was to add more disk space to the storage infrastructure—an approach which can quickly become cost-prohibitive as information volumes continue to grow, while capital budgets for infrastructure do not.
Data deduplication has emerged as a key technology in the effort to dramatically reduce the amount and the cost associated with storing large amounts of data. Deduplication is the art of intelligently reducing storage needs an order of magnitude better than common data compression techniques – through the elimination of redundant data so that only one instance of a data set is actually stored.
