Data Deduplication is the method of reducing storage needs by eliminating redundant data. Only one unique instance of the data is actually retained on storage media, such as disk or tape. Redundant data is replaced with pointers to the unique data copy.
Data Deduplication offers many other benefits such as, lower storage space requirements which will save you and your company money on disk expenditures. The more efficient use of disk space also allows for longer disk retention periods, which provides better recovery time objectives for a longer time and reduces the need for media.
