Backup Exec Deduplication Option

Easily reduce data backup storage by 10:1 while optimizing network utilization across physical and virtual environments with the Backup Exec Deduplication Option. Unlike other solutions, it provides an integrated and customizable deduplication offering to optimize any backup strategy with client deduplication (deduplicates data at the source or remote server), media server deduplication (deduplicates data at media server), or appliance deduplication (integrates with OpenStorage deduplication appliances). In addition, when used with the Enterprise Server Option, deduplicated backups can also be replicated efficiently over WAN environments to another Backup Exec Media server (deduplicates data from remote offices to headquarters) providing a solution that will adapt to any environment.
