This paper offers an overview of the data management tool, deduplication, and a brief understanding of the variety of deduplication solution types. In an era of burgeoning data growth, reductions in duplicate data can help to deliver improved data management capabilities, maximized asset utilization, and minimized new data storage capacity requirements. However, to be truly effective, a deduplication solution must be highly reliable and compatible with the existing storage environment. This will provide the users with information to make a better decision for their specific environment.
