Storage Savings With Domino and NetApp Deduplication
NetApp deduplication technology provides block-level intelligent data compression by eliminating redundant data. Only one unique instance of the data is retained on storage. Redundant data is replaced with a pointer to the unique data copy. Combining NetApp deduplication and Lotus Domino offers customers not only lower storage space requirements and lower capital expenditures but also huge savings in terms of lower energy bills and storage footprint. Deduplicated or compressed data also means longer disk retention periods and less data transfer on the corporate WAN for backup, replication, and disaster recovery. This paper describes the use of NetApp deduplication in Domino environments.
