Overview: Proliferation and preservation of many versions and copies of data drives much of the tremendous data growth most companies are experiencing. IT administrators are left to deal with the consequences. Because deduplication addresses one of the key elements of data growth, it should be at the heart of any data management strategy; it should be baked into the fundamental design of the system. Storage systems vendors who treat deduplication merely as a feature will check off a box on a feature list, but may not, in practice, deliver the benefits deduplication promises.
This paper demonstrates how storage systems can be built with a deduplication engine powerful enough to become a platform that general applications can leverage.
