Limited storage footprints, growing data and shrinking budgets sound familiar to you? Why pay to store hundreds of copies of a file when you can store that file once and reference the same data a hundred times. IBM System Storage® N series Deduplication is designed to optimize storage space by eliminating redundant data objects with minimal impact on operations. It can help you to reduce power, space, support and other costs while also supporting high speed backup, provisioning and disaster recovery.
IBM System Storage N series Deduplication provides block-level deduplication within the entire flexible volume on N series systems. Deduplication stores only unique blocks in the flexible volume and creates a small amount of additional metadata during the process.
