Space consumption rises massively
our daily amount of backup jobs has 7 servers which we run as full backups on a deduplication storage. Every data record is to be maintained for 5 days. At the end of the week we save the entire media server on Tape also as complete backup.
On this tape backup we have growth rates of 100 GB per week even though our total data size increases only slightly, if at all.
Am I wrong if I expect that the total amount of data should stagnate or rise only slightly equal to the data on our servers?
The storage space on our servers is stagnating or rises just about 1-2GB per week. Nethertheless the deduplication storage is growing constantly much more than our servers?
