In recent years, data deduplication has made its ways from the storage to the networking community. More specifically, it has become an important tool for optimizing application performance across the WAN. By eliminating the transfer of repetitive IP traffic, deduplication significantly improves WAN utilization and accelerates data transfers between geographically disperse locations. This saves bandwidth costs and helps to overcome many obstacles when communicating across a WAN.
This paper discusses how WAN deduplication works, and how it can be effectively deployed as a complement to existing storage deduplication solutions.
This paper looks at the benefits to be realized in the combined scenario of HP StoreOnce appliances being used with HP’s own Data Protector 7 backup software while considering the topic of “where” the deduplication occurs.

The traditional taxonomy of data protection appliances – also known as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs) – covers two primary categories:
• Backup Appliances
• Deduplication Appliances
Let’s explore this taxonomy and market dynamics.
This paper outlines some of the important considerations for encrypting data on tape, and is intended to help IT administrators make the right decision for their environment and their company's data security needs.
In this competitive whitepaper, Edison Group provides an independent, third-party perspective and evaluation of HP's new B6200 StoreOnce Backup System versus EMC Data Domain. Criteria considered included scalability (including capacity and performance), high availability, architectural approach, pricing, and licensing.
This report describes how improving the efficiency of data storage, deduplication solutions has enabled organizations to cost-justify the increased use of disk for backup and recovery. However, the changing demands on IT storage infrastructures have begun to strain the capabilities of initial deduplication products. To meet these demands, a new generation of deduplication solutions is emerging which scale easily, offer improved performance and availability and simplify management and integration within the IT storage infrastructure. HP refers to this new generation as "Deduplication 2.0.
For remote office protection, you can reliably get a backup and a DR copy of data at any location without the need for onsite expertise. Read this paper to learn more about the next generation of deduplication.

Fast-growing data and widespread virtualization have ratcheted up data protection challenges no matter what the size of your business. This paper will describe the challenges of data protection, why deduplication is critical to meeting the challenges, how HP is achieving its vision of federated dedupe with StoreOnce – and what HP’s StoreOnce VSA announcement and achievement means to backup services providers, enterprises with remote or branch offices and small and medium businesses as well.
HP commissioned Forrester Consulting in October 2013 to leverage existing Forrsights data and to survey IT hardware decision-makers in North America and Europe about their storage requirements for this Technology Adoption Profile.
This video (3:58 min) shows the typical journey that your data might take from its creation to its retirement. HP Experts discuss how various storage solutions are used to best handle, protect and retain that data regardless of how and where it is being used.
The deduplication is one of the fastest growing segments in storage. Accordingly, every vendor is telling their version of the deduplication story. With emerging technologies, it is difficult for IT managers to determine what the true IT benefits vs. marketing spin are. This brief document discusses several key areas of deduplication and uncovers six NetApp “challenges” customers should understand when evaluating HP StoreOnce Backup Systems and NetApp as their deduplication solution of choice.
A few years ago, two technologies emerged to dramatically improve the industry’s ability to protect data. The cost of disk drives came down, and deduplication technology was introduced. This breakthrough is sometimes referred to as Deduplication 1.0. Like any technology, you’d expect it to evolve over time. HP launched the HP StoreOnce deduplication technology roadmap in 2010 to do just that. The result? Deduplication 2.0 or what HP calls “Federated Deduplication”. This next generation deduplication addresses some of the issues inherent in existing deduplication solutions: performance, flexibility, and data management and not only that, when moving from your legacy storage backup systems, you can reduce the amount of your stored backup data by 95 percent or we’ll make up the difference with free disk capacity and support.
Make sense of modern storage technologies and architectures and how they might impact your business. HP helps you understand unstructured data, block and object storage, storage system architectures, and storage networking options. Discover how the right mix or technologies such as virtualization, file sharing, and deduplication can help control storage costs, protect your data from loss or corruption, and provide reliable access to critical business information for every authorized user. See how.
In these days of rampant data growth, a technology that can increase the effective capacity of a disk-based backup system by a ratio of up to 50:1 is big news. Data deduplication allows you to store up to 50 times more backup data into the same disk footprint — giving you a better chance of restoring your users' lost data from exactly the point they need it. This white paper explains how this innovative data deduplication solution works and also establishes how a 50:1 deduplication ratio may be achieved.
Data deduplication technology represents one of the most significant storage enhancements in recent years, promising to reshape future data protection and disaster recovery solutions. Data deduplication offers the ability to store more on a given amount of storage and replicate data using lower bandwidth links at a significantly reduced cost. This white paper explains how deduplication technologies work in practice, the pros and cons of each approach, and when to choose a particular type.
