1) Understanding the Benefits and Costs of Deduplication of Data on Mass Storage Quite likely, there is a great deal of duplicate data in your workstations, servers, and backups right now. In addition to storage space, duplicate information consumes valuable network bandwidth as we back up data from our satellite offices to the data center, and from our data center to remote sites for disaster recovery. Deduplication is the process of identifying and eliminating duplicate data. Eliminating duplicate data could have a direct effect on the amount of storage and network hardware that is required company-wide. This paper’s intention is not to provide a definitive answer, but to discuss the concepts of this topic and present some of the underlying costs so one can make educated decisions while evaluating and testing various solutions.
