The Acronis Backup & Recovery Deduplication option provides affordable file and block level software deduplication capability for workstations and servers, helping organizations of all sizes maximize use of their storage infrastructure, while saving costs and increasing capacity.
With the Acronis Deduplication option, cut data storage requirements by 90% or more, by eliminating replicas of the same file or block on either the source or target. If data already exists on the storage node, then only a link is created to associate the data with the backup client.
Lower overall cost of storage
By eliminating redundant data being backed up, store less data and save on storage space and operation costs.
Promotes a "greener" IT operations
Deduplicated data is more environmentally efficient because it reduces the amount of electricity consumed and equipment needed to backup IT environments.
Tight integration with Acronis Backup & Recovery Advanced Editions reduces recovery times to minutes.
Allows IT administrators to meet federal and corporate compliance requirements more efficiently
These requirements can create massive additional amounts of data, and deduplication reduces the cost of maintaining it.
Deduplication can be applied to full, incremental and differential backups.
Some companies price their deduplication products by the amount of data that is deduplicated, making it difficult to gauge the total cost of ownership. Pricing for AAcronis Backup & Recovery Deduplication is per protected machine, bringing this capability to both large and small organizations.
Uses commodity storage hardware
As a software-only solution, Acronis bypasses the need for costly proprietary hardware.
Easy to use
Acronis deduplication functions are carefully designed for simplicity of operation, and Acronis deduplication features page-based navigation to reduce the need for extensive training.
