In today’s environment, capacity-optimization technologies play a critical role where companies need to do more with less. With data growing exponentially, new methods of handling growing data have emerged both, in storage, and the backup world. Two of the most popular methods in the backup world are deduplication and compression.
While similar in purpose, these technologies provide data reductions for dissimilar data sets. It’s critical to understand how these two technologies operate, which application types will benefit from their use but most importantly, understanding how the combination can provide unmatched storage savings across the broadest set of use cases.
