Data Reduction for Copy Data
Copy data comes about when copy after copy of documents, files and other electronic data are created as a result of traditional enterprise operations such as: disaster recovery, business continuity, test, development, and backup.
These operations are going on independently of each other with each working against an independent data store. As a result, significant duplication of data occurs, and there is a substantial storage cost associated with each operation.
Data reduction capabilities allow customers to group physical data stores into global capacity-optimized (deduped/compressed) pools of storage that are then carved up into virtual data stores. Because all Permabit data reduction products are designed to work with existing storage capabilities, Albireo-enabled virtual data stores are able to operate in concert with existing hardware features and software functions to eliminate copy data without the need for specialized agents.
