Don’t get duped with a dedupe-ratios-only approach to capacity efficiency

By Priyadarshi (Pd), Product Line Manager, HP 3PAR Storage   @Priyadarshi_Pd




 Be aware of the storage overheads when looking at dedupe

Dedupe ratios are well and good. However don’t forget that dedupe is a means to an end, not an end in itself. The final goal is “storage efficiency.” And storage efficiency is not just about dedupe. If an architecture is inherently inefficient, a higher dedupe ratio might not help much. Let me dig into the topic of dedupe ratios and storage savings a bit more.

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage


StoreOnce_308x220_tcm245_1534335_tcm245_1515474_tcm245-1534335.jpgIt has been more than two years since we announced federated deduplication.This technology addresses many of the shortcomings of other deduplication solutions—such as incompatible deduplication algorithms implemented in software and hardware, comparatively slower restore performance versus backup performance, and inefficient methods of scaling deduplication to meet ever expanding capacity requirements. All of these challenges result in increasing risk, additional costs, and significant management overheads for the user. So, let’s take a closer look at HP StoreOnce deduplication and the benefits it brings.

StoreOnce B6200 gets a big visitor

Last week at HP Discover in Vienna we announced the HP StoreOnce B6200 Backup System.  I have a podcast I did with Jay Livens that I also turned into a video. You can watch that in this blog post as well as a new video showing the B6200 in the booth at HP Discover.  I also talk about our CEO Meg Whitman stopping by the booth to check out the B6200.  Here's a picture of that:
