Global Endpoint Deduplication

Faster Backup Deduplication Solutions Than Ever. 

Bacula Systems’ Global Endpoint Deduplication™ is built into Bacula Enterprise and is an enterprise-grade backup technology that gives you the choice to apply it either to 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; giving you the benefits of both global and endpoint deduplication.

You can also combine this ‘dedupe’ at the client side with Bacula Enterprise’s comm line compression feature to allow even better management and lower bandwidth consumption.

In-Cloud Deduplication

Bacula’s deduplication is also used in the Cloud. It provides a high degree of security and management options. Contact Bacula for more details on in-Cloud Deduplication.

Do backup deduplication wherever you want

  • on the storage side, to allow your client to send data at the maximum throughput
  • in the Cloud


Choose your filesystem with Global Endpoint Deduplication

While Bacula Systems’ alternative Aligned Volume deduplication technology needs an underlying deduplicating filesystem,Global Endpoint Deduplication works with all the filesystems. If you want even more security with GED, use a filesystem  that will directly take into account the safety of your data.


Go global with Global Endpoint Deduplication

Wherever the endpoint backup deduplication takes  place with Bacula Enterprise Global Endpoint Deduplication, it is global. Global means that backups store blocks never seen before on any client. Duplicate blocks for all clients become just a reference to a previously stored block.
