Understanding Storage and WAN Deduplication

VMworld 2012: Understanding Deduplication (Video)

When many people think of “deduplication” in information technology (IT), they likely think of its applicability in the storage world. But deduplication can also be applied to the wide area network (WAN).

In this video, Silver Peak director of replication product management, Everett Dolgner, talks about the differences between storage deduplication and WAN deduplication. Everett discusses the impact the WAN and MPLS connections can have on the performance of storage replication over distance, and how companies can increase existing bandwidth by 95% and improve the performance of their replication processes.
