Abstract: 

Data deduplication can often be very helpful when applied to replication of data for disaster recovery projects, since deduplication significantly reduces the amount of bandwidth required to replicate data. This technical session will address the question of how deduplication fits into DR strategies, and what the various architectural choices available today are - for implementation.

Learning Objectives

Participants will review what deduplication is and will learn how it can help with data replication projects for meeting DR objectives.
Participants will understand the impact of data deduplication on replication over a WAN and on the use of cloud storage as the DR target.
Participants will be able to decide whether data deduplication will help them meet data protection SLAs for their particular DR environment.
