Deduplication is a growing trend in storage as enterprises have come to realize they were making multiple backups of the same files. So to get rid of all the redundant copies, specialized software was necessary. But how long can it take to chew through petabytes of backups?
Storage giant EMC is currently hosting its user show, EMC World, in Boston this week and among today’s big news is the announcement of faster deduplication software. Enterprise Storage Forum has the details.
BOSTON — The big news on the second day of EMC World was all about new Data Domain software that speeds up deduplication.
EMC’s (NYSE: EMC) fast-growing data deduplication product lineup overshadowed some midrange announcements surrounding the company’s fully automated storage tiering (FAST) technology, suggesting just how big an opportunity the data storage giant sees in its dedupe and backup business.
