If deduplication is such a cost effective data reduction technique, why doesn’t every IT organisation use it? Until recently, the cost of proprietary hardware deduplication products has priced large and small organisations out of consideration.
That same cost concern forced the relatively small percentage of organisations who could afford it to reserve it only for server data, despite the fact that workstation data frequently represents half of the entire data owned by an organisation.
However, the advent of software-only deduplication has substantially lowered the threshold for purchase, making it attractive to organisations of all sizes, and allowing workstation data to be deduplicated as well.
In this white paper, Acronis defines deduplication, details its benefits and makes a business case for using it in Windows and Linux environments.
