The market for cloud backup services in the personal computing environment is growing due to large volumes of valuable personal and corporate data being stored on desktops, laptops and Smartphone's. Source deduplication has become a mainstay of cloud backup that saves network bandwidth and reduces storage space. However, there are two challenges facing deduplication for cloud backup service clients: low deduplication efficiency due to a combination of the resource intensive nature of deduplication and the limited system resources on the PC-based client site; and low data transfer efficiency since post-deduplication data transfers from source to backup servers are typically very small but must often cross a WAN.
