Deduplication is certainly a hot topic! I have seen many great discussions about deduplication in many different forums. Many of the discussions center around technical specifications.  Unfortunately, this is not a new phenomenon.  Technical specifications address the applicability of a particular product to a range of uses, sometimes broad but more often narrow in focus.  Deduplication has grown out of many different needs in the industry.  The greatest of these is cost reduction.  Cost reduction in storage, backup, network, and protection (lumping information security with data loss prevention and the like).

Deduplication is dictated by the requirements of the organization, technical bottlenecks, and operating situations. Ideally, you would deduplicate at the source (at the client) and at the target (globally). This would provide the best of both worlds in that there...

Wow!  We at GreenBytes couldn’t be more excited about the outlook of our new partnership with Symantec.  It has been a whirlwind since we announced our inline dedupe product line in September (GB-X Series) and our certified support for OST has added a new dimension to the conversation. 

GreenBytes is not another “Me Too” vendor as it relates to OST.  We have fully implemented Optimized Duplication, providing enhanced replication that is fully DR aware.  And, we are poised and ready for Optimized Synthetic Full Backups when they become available to the world.  We are also very excited about the prospects of BackupExec customers being able to utilize OST.  We are actively developing plugins for BE 2010 and can’t wait to deploy them with our existing and future BE customers.  But, that’s not where the story ends.

GreenBytes provides competitive advantages over previous deduplicating OST appliances....
