Deduplication is ideal for highly redundant operations like backup, which requires repeatedly copying and storing the same data set multiple times for recovery purposes. As a result, enterprises of all sizes rely on backup and recovery with deduplication for fast, reliable, and cost-effective backup and recovery.
Eliminating redundant data can significantly shrink storage requirements and improve bandwidth efficiency. Because primary storage has gotten cheaper over time, enterprises typically store many versions of the same information so that new workers can reuse previously done work. Some operations like backup store extremely redundant information.
