Simplifying ‘De-Dupe’ with a Common Architecture

Lately, we’ve been talking a lot about server technology in this blog, but storage is an equally important component of how to Simplify and Save with IT. And we’ve got important news.

A few weeks ago, we announced a new commitment to dramatically simplify de-duplication via a single de-duplication architecture across our PowerVault EqualLogic and Dell/EMC product families.

The very practice of de-duping simplifies data management by eliminating redundant copies of data… residing in multiple applications… on multiple hardware products. It saves money by reducing the amount of storage capacity required for back-up, with compression ratios that can range from 10:1 to as high as 30:1. De-duping also reduces the amount of network bandwidth required, especially during back-up or archiving.

With the compatibility that comes with a common architecture, customers will now find it much easier to replicate and de-duplicate data across multiple sites, from departments or branch offices to the data center. They will spend less time and effort, and also benefit from the cost reductions that non-proprietary technology always provides over the long term.

To further simplify de-duping, Dell offers a full range of services to help customers assess their current situation, design a comprehensive de-duplication solution and then implement it.
