Data Deduplication Software

Dedupe Smarter, Not Harder

While there are many organizations that prefer a backup target that does deduplication, there are also many organizations that want to build out a more comprehensive data protection strategy and leverage deduplication technology where it makes the most sense.

If you only employ target deduplication, you end up moving redundant data over the network before deduplication, which causes strain on the network.

Symantec delivers deduplication technology that can be deployed at the client, media server, and the target, delivering a more customizable data protection strategy and significantly reducing the amount of data traversing the network — speeding up backups, lowering bandwidth requirements, and saving you time and money.
