|You've certainly heard all the hype around deduplication, with all its contradictory advice.|
Bacula Systems makes deduplication simple and helps you make the right choices for your IT infrastructure with 2 dedup technologies:
Aligned Volume Format™ and Global Endpoint Deduplication™.
With Aligned Volume Format™ (patent pending) you can take advantage of
the fact that Bacula Enterprise Edition allows you the option to store your data in a way that exploits the deduplication capabilities of your underlying file system. This is a universal deduplication solution that can be used with all storage systems.
Global Endpoint Deduplication™ incorporates a built-in deduplication
technology that allows you the choice to either start deduplication on the client side (file daemon) thereby saving network and storage resources or at the storage level depending on how you want to manage your data and giving you the benefits of both global and endpoint deduplication. Additionally, you can combine deduplication at the client side and Bacula Enterprise Edition's comm line compression feature to allow even better management and lower bandwidth consumption.
