Executive Summary

With rapid growth in data creation and increasing retention requirements, today's businesses need to control and minimize the amount of data that is created and stored across the Information Infrastructure.

Data reduction is needed to minimize the total amount of storage and network bandwidth required, to improve availability, and to lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in hardware, administration, and environmental costs. Deduplication and other forms of data reduction (compression, Single Instance Store, and so on) are features, not products, and thus can exist in many places in the Information Infrastructure stack. IBM offers a comprehensive set of data reduction and deduplication solutions for the entire Information Infrastructure.

IBM has been the industry leader in data reduction techniques for decades. IBM invented Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) and the progressive incremental backup model, greatly reducing the primary and backup storage needs of its customers. Today, IBM continues to provide its customers the most efficient data management and data protection solutions available. ProtecTIER, the Storage Industry's fastest and highest scaling deduplication solution, and Tivoli Storage Manager, with its HSM, tape, and progressive incremental efficiencies combined with built-in deduplication, are excellent examples of IBM's continued leadership.
