Data Deduplication

While deduplication offers many benefits, especially large increases to storage efficiency, it’s important you carefully weigh the considerations that factor into the process so that you will have accurate expectations. We recommend discussions around realistic deduplication rates, clarifying the difference between single-instance storage and data deduplication, how variable-segment deduplication differs from block-level deduplication, the importance of implementing real-world testing, and more.

According to the Disaster Recovery Site, “Despite the number of very public disasters since 9/11, still only about 50 percent of companies report having a disaster recovery plan. Of those that do, nearly half have never tested their plan, which is tantamount to not having one at all.”


Replication & Disaster Recovery

A disaster recovery plan (DRP) – sometimes referred to as a business continuity plan (BCP) or business process contingency plan (BPCP) – describes how an organization is to deal with potential disasters. As devices, systems and networks become ever more complex, there are simply more things that can go wrong. As a consequence, recovery plans have also become more complex. Appropriate plans vary from one enterprise to another, depending on variables such as the type of business, the processes involved, and the level of security needed.

Disaster recovery planning may be developed within an organization or purchased as a software application or we can help you find a recommended service provider. Once a plan in created, Extend can help you link up solutions that carry out that plan.
