Business data continues to grow by up to 60% per year, outpacing both IT budget and staff. This exponential data growth can negatively affect backup windows, system performance, and scalability, all while increasing operational costs.

However, there is a solution to this growing problem! Global Deduplication increases efficiency and lowers costs by reducing storage capacity needs and by providing load balancing and high availability (HA), allowing you to efficiently manage your entire storage environment.

View this slide deck and watch this webinar recording to learn how your environment can benefit from deduplication. Duane Johnson, FalconStor Storage Architect, discusses why global deduplication is so critical for users with large amounts of data and how it allows them to:

- Reduce the amount of storage required to protect data
- Ensure faster backup and recovery of data
- Utilize low-bandwidth replication for cost-effective protection
- Improve the efficiency of data archiving

  • 6. Deduplication Top Trends for IT “Every survey we do identifies that the number one pressure on IT managers is meeting the organization's requirements for more physical storage capacity," "Data deduplication technology can greatly reduce the demand for physical storage by identifying and compressing redundant data." Aberdeen Research • 67% of leading companies utilize data deduplication technology. • One half of highly performing organizations have virtualized most applications, providing superior application mobility, provisioning and protection from server failures. • 57% replicate data to remote locations. • Companies leading in the deployment of virtualization technology employ data deduplication at three-times the rate of average companies.

  • 9. Deduplication – Value Proposition As simple as A B C D A • • C D Assurance • B Business Continuity Cost Containment Data Growth Management Enable faster backup and recovery • Eliminate tape transport for DR • Reduce storage footprint • Improves SLA through direct DR access and faster restore • Reduce power, cooling, and space (OPEX) • Reduce WAN bandwidth cost • Reduce IT staff time to manage backup and recovery Eliminate the uncertainty of tape Improve the efficiency of data archiving FalconStor VTL v7.5 Deduplication Solutions 9 Copyright © 2012 FalconStor Software · All Rights Reserved • Reduce the amount of storage required for data protection • Reduce WAN bandwidth requirements by replicating only unique data
  • 10. Major Benefits of Deduplication • Enables faster backup and recovery of data using disk technologies • Reduces the amount of storage required to protect data • Purchase less hardware (reducing capital expenses) • Reduces the network bandwidth required to transfer data • Minimizes IT staff time to manage and supervise data storage, backup, and recovery • Realigns staff time, allowing focus on more important projects • Improves the efficiency of data archiving • Reduces power, cooling, and space requirements for data storage FalconStor VTL v7.5 Deduplication Solutions 10 Copyright © 2012 FalconStor Software · All Rights Reserved
  • 11. Backup TCO Equation • Throughput; Scalability, High Availability, Load Balancing • High Data Growth (10-30%) breaks backup – Deduplication helps – Adding infrastructure helps – Creates more points of management • Global Deduplication – “the ability to manage multiple deduplication nodes as one” – Throughput; Scalability; High Availability; Load Balancing – Improve efficiency, reduce administration overhead – Tie back to lower cost, ease-of-use, performance and scalability FalconStor VTL v7.5 Deduplication Solutions 11 Copyright © 2012 FalconStor Software · All Rights Reserved

  • 13. Confusion of Global Deduplication • Application – All application data no matter the source is deduplicated in the same repository • WAN Optimization – Replication of only one copy of data no matter how many remote location copies • Clustered nodes – Shared deduplication repository – If a node fails, all can still be restored – A need for scaling - data reduction efficiencies continue to be obtained – no silos of storage The FalconStor Deduplication Solution provides all of these features and benefits of TRUE GLOBAL Deduplication FalconStor VTL v7.5 Deduplication Solutions 13 Copyright © 2012 FalconStor Software · All Rights Reserved

  • 17. Why Global Deduplication • Reduce Cost – – • Ease of Implementation – – • Doesn’t matter which node does backup or dedupe Without global dedupe, need to introduce a process to divvy up large backup jobs Scalability – – • Even large single nodes do not perform as well as multiple global dedupe nodes Throughput, not capacity, causes customers to purchase more silo appliances Inline dedupe requires scheduled defragmentation, impacts restore performance Better integration with existing backup process – – • Silo’s increase management cost and impact administration overhead Eliminate need to load-balance backup at the application layer Improves backup/recovery – – – • Increase efficiency, lower physical storage cost Increase overall dedupe ratio Better scalability as customer data and performance requirements grow No concern about where and what you need to do with a backup as you scale Availability – FalconStor VTL includes HA, no concern about single point of vulnerability FalconStor VTL v7.5 Deduplication Solutions 17 Copyright © 2012 FalconStor Software · All Rights Reserved

  • 21. Case for Global Deduplication • Greater than 10-20TB requires Global Deduplication • 10-20TB over 12 hours = 230-460 MB/sec performance • Example: 140TB Data Center – – – – 7 servers, 20TB each 12 hour backup windows Distributed weekly full Incremental 6 servers (avg 5-10%) = 1-2 TB/server = 6-12TB • Nightly backup requirement 26-32 TB/night • Performance requirement 700-888 MB/sec (2.5-3.2 TB/hr) • This would require 3-4 silo target appliances • One Scalable/HA FalconStor VTL/SIR Cluster Solution FalconStor VTL v7.5 Deduplication Solutions 21 Copyright © 2012 FalconStor Software · All Rights Reserved
  • 22. A Need for Global Deduplication Data Growth Management • Data is growing too fast and users cannot meet backup windows or restore fast enough to meet SLA Reduced Cost • Need to control acquisition and operating costs Performance • Need for scalable performance, load balancing, increased deduplication efficiency, and HA Efficiency • Single unified deduplication repository – higher efficiency Scalability • Eliminates storage silos, and the need to load-balance backup at the application layer, reduces complexity Administration FalconStor VTL v7.5 Deduplication Solutions 22 Copyright © 2012 FalconStor Software · All Rights Reserved • Reduce administrative overhead – ease of use, performance, and scalability
