Can anyone explain.....
"Deduplication strips out redundant data from files at the sub-file level. HP is claiming it can provide a reduction in backup file size of up to 50:1......."
Is this the same as lossless data compression (ZIP etc) or is it something new/extra/special?
"HP states that the data deduplication technology for the VLS and D2D enables customers to automate and remotely manage the systems with low-bandwidth replication. This provides data center managers the ability to back up data remotely without manual intervention, thereby reducing staffing costs."
Is this the same as saying 'It's hard drive storage so there's no need for on-site staff to take care of loading tapes." ? If so, why didn't they just say that?
