Deduplicate everywhere to reduce the cost of storing information
Backup Exec's Deduplication Option offers three methods for deduplicating data across the enterprise. These methods are Client Deduplication, Media Server Deduplication, and Appliance Deduplication. Backup Exec's Deduplication Option enables customers to use any of these methods to achieve deduplication across file servers, application servers, and virtualized servers in the enterprise.
Client deduplication - deduplication at the source
Backup Exec's Deduplication Option can enable client deduplication. This is the act of performing deduplication at the source, and removing redundant data as close to the source as possible maximizes the benefits of deduplication. Backup Exec offers source deduplication at the client, built into the product for fast, efficient backup and recovery. Client deduplication removes redundant data at the source, which leads to lower memory and bandwidth utilization compared to a traditional backup, thereby freeing up more client resources for production services in both physical and virtual environments. Deduplicating information closer to the source will decrease network traffic and reduce the storage footprint, helping to beat backup windows and make backup strategies more successful.
Media server deduplication - reducing the cost of storageProduct Highlights
Backup Exec's Deduplication Option also enables media server deduplication - deduplication that takes place on the media server at backup time. Backup Exec's Deduplication Option enables deduplication that is integrated with the media server. The Backup Exec media server offers inline deduplication by processing data streams in flight; requires no extra staging disks for processing, leading to more optimal use of storage.
- Client deduplication provides significant bandwidth savings over traditional backups, making remote office backup practical
- Media server deduplication provides significant storage savings for VMWare ESX and vSphere backups
- Integration with deduplication appliances through Symantec's Open Storage protocol allows Backup Exec to manage appliance deduplication and replication functions
- Improve backup performance while using Appliance Deduplication when compared to CIFS or NFS transfers
