Faster Backup Than Ever
Bacula Systems’ Global Endpoint Deduplication™ (GED) is built into Bacula Enterprise Edition and is an advanced 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 Edition’s comm line compression feature to allow even better management and lower bandwidth consumption.
The benefits are significant:
- Save storage space
- Save network bandwidth
- Easily back up your laptops
- Enjoy fast backup and restore processes
- Don’t depend on expensive hardware technology
Do deduplication wherever you want
The GED plugin means the process takes place where you want:
- on the client side, to reduce the data sent over the network
- on the storage side, to allow your client to send data at the maximum throughput
Choose your filesystem
While Bacula Systems’ alternative Aligned Volume deduplication technology needs an underlying deduplicating filesystem, GED 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.
Wherever the deduplication takes place, with Bacula Enterprise GED, 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.
Start the DB engine
The GED process requires huge indexes. To store them, Bacula Systems has chosen a noSQL database to get even better performance and scalability.
Save on storage space like never before. Significantly reduce network bandwidth. Save time with super-quick backup and restore.
“Never seen this before!… I could back up a 1.5 Terabyte Oracle database with 500 Gigabyte disk space thanks to Bacula Enterprise Editions De-duplication engine”
