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.
