Powerful data protection

The next generation of deduplication

Data protection: It's a bit like liability, casualty, and other insurance - isn't it? You don't want to ever use your insurance, but it's essential to have when problems arises. And the cost of data protection "insurance" is not just the cost of equipment and staffing. It also includes the degradation of your business operations when:
  • A backup window runs too long.
  • It takes too long to restore lost or damaged data.
  • Data at remote locations isn't properly protected.
  • A regulatory auditor identifies some concerns.
  • A tape falls off the truck and ends up in the wrong hands.
A few years ago, two technologies emerged to dramatically improve the industry's ability to protect data. The cost of disk drives came down, and deduplication technology was introduced.
