HP, which calls the new dedupe scheme quot;Deduplication 2.0, quot; claims that its B6200 StoreOnce Backup System can process and restore data at the breakneck speed of 28TB per hour, which the company contends is at least three times the rate of competing systems that it chose not to name. However, eWEEK can name them. Comparable backup systems are provided by companies such as EMC (with its Data Domain line), Fujitsu, Dell (with Compellent), IBM (with XIV) and Oracle (with Pillar Data Systems). In HP's mind, Deduplication 2.0 is a unified process designed to break down silos of data caused by the use of multiple products and platforms, Sean Kinney, director of product marketing for HP Storage, told eWEEK. One Dedupe for All Workloads quot;The conventional storage world is mostly about point products to solve point problems within the customer's environment, quot; Kinney said. quot;In the deduplication 2.0 world, it should be about one common deduplication algorithm across the enterprise, really for deployment independence. quot; Thus, StoreOnce aims to provide a one-stop shop for all your data deduplication needs wherever the data resides in the system, Kinney said. The efficiencies are found in simpler operation, fewer specialists required to do the job and centralized control.
