  • When and where should you dedupe?
    to turn it on such as an MRI image or for other data types like databases where you don t want to interfere with performance One of the drawbacks of a software based approach is that adopting a deduplication feature could require an upgrade in backup application and or client agents Another factor is that deduplication may be processor intensive and when performed at the source application server it may compete with and slow down apps The scalability and performance of the media server performing deduplication could also be limiting factors It will be important to investigate the upper limits of deduplication pools and performance capabilities for large volumes of data Hardware based deduplication Hardware based deduplication is less disruptive that is it s seamless to deploy because it s compatible with any backup software and can be implemented quickly and easily It typically leverages powerful purpose built storage appliances to accommodate processing of the entire non deduplicated backup load either pre or post ingestion Hardware based solutions also have the advantage of processing data streams from multiple backup applications There are a few trade offs to consider More data than may be necessary traverses the network between the source system and target device creating unnecessary congestion as deduplication happens at the end of the data path Depending on the solution scalability could be another drawback Some vendors are limited to single node systems which can result in multiple islands of deduplication and points of management as well as underutilization in capacity per silo Data streamed to a single node system is only compared with other data directed to the node The goal of many target side deduplication vendors is to deduplicate across clustered nodes Global dedupe allows backup data to be deduplicated against all other backup data regardless of which head actually receives the data This capability is seen more often in software based and grid architecture approaches but may also be supported for target deduplication systems that replicate in a hub and spoke fashion with global deduplication occurring at the hub Global deduplication can result in higher deduplication ratios as data is deduplicated within and across backup sources and greater economies of scale with respect to operational overhead and capital costs Cost is a factor Enterprise Strategy Group research has found that organizations are just as likely to purchase and implement data deduplication technology from backup software vendors as they are from disk appliance hardware vendors The top considerations when evaluating and selecting a data deduplication provider are cost ease of integration performance ease of use and scalability with cost clearly outranking the others Now that deduplication is becoming a mainstream feature integrated in backup software it will be interesting to see if bolt on deduplication systems can maintain their premium price As with any new technology it will be important for IT organizations to evaluate software and hardware based approaches vs the requirements of the environment Having a clear understandin This was first published in March 2009
