Data deduplication is an important new technology that is quickly being embraced by users as they struggle to control data proliferation. By eliminating redundant data objects, an immediate benefit is obtained through space efficiencies. When choosing a deduplication product, however, it is important to consider all aspects of design, including hashing, indexing, inline or postprocessing, source or destination, and of course space savings efficiency. NetApp, a leader in data storage efficiency since 1992, has established A-SIS deduplication as the first deduplication product to be used broadly across many applications, including data backup, data archival and primary data. A-SIS deduplication combines the benefits of granularity, performance, and resiliency to provide users with significant data deduplication benefits.
