Intelligent Deduplication in NetBackup and Backup Exec, the smarter way to handle information explosion.

About Deduplication

Most deduplication approaches reduce the storage needed for backups by chunking the backup stream and storing unique segments once. Backups deduplicate well because only a small amount of daily data normally changes (<10%).

Data deduplication makes it possible to use disks as cost effective backup and recovery target for local and DR purposes, minimizing the need for tape media.

Symantec Deduplication Advantage

Symantec Deduplication does more than other data deduplication solutions.

  • Intelligent Deduplication—Accurately identifies object boundaries within the data stream and splits further for efficient deduplication without computationally intensive and power hogging chunking techniques.
  • Dedupe Everywhere—Reduce storage closer to source, at the media server or at the target appliances.
  • V-Ray powered—Visibility across physical & virtual systems for greater storage reduction and 4 types of recovery from one backup.
