A few years ago, two technologies emerged to dramatically improve the industry’s ability to protect data. The cost of disk drives came down, and deduplication technology was introduced. This breakthrough is sometimes referred to as Deduplication 1.0. Like any technology, you’d expect it to evolve over time. HP launched the HP StoreOnce deduplication technology roadmap in 2010 to do just that. The result? Deduplication 2.0 or what HP calls “Federated Deduplication”. This next generation deduplication addresses some of the issues inherent in existing deduplication solutions: performance, flexibility, and data management and not only that, when moving from your legacy storage backup systems, you can reduce the amount of your stored backup data by 95 percent or we’ll make up the difference with free disk capacity and support.
