Data deduplication technology represents one of the most significant storage enhancements in recent years, promising to reshape future data protection and disaster recovery solutions. Data deduplication offers the ability to store more on a given amount of storage and replicate data using lower bandwidth links at a significantly reduced cost. This whitepaper explains how HP deduplication technologies work in practice, the pros and cons of each approach, when to choose a particular type, and the type of low-bandwidth replication models HP plans to support.
