Making the Most Out of Your Storage Space

Data depuplication is an excellent way to optimize your existing storage space.  Essentially, deduplication removes redundant data and replaces it with a pointer to the “single-instance” of the data remaining. As a result, there are multiple benefits to the data center:

  • Required storage space is reduced
  • Disk expenditures are reduced
  • Recovery time objectives (RTO) are improved
  • The amount of data sent over a WAN is reduced
  • Transmission times are improved

Deduplication is a software solution and is often utilized in conjunction with conventional compression or other techniques.  There are a large variety of vendors offering deduplication services, and DDS works with all the best-in-class options to determine which is right for your business case.
