The Right Deduplication Method for the Right Data: Interview with Sepaton’s Director of Product Management, Peter Quirk, Part III
Anyone who is close to backup recognizes that some types of data deduplicate better than others. However trying to translate that understanding of the environment into meaningful backup policies is almost impossible since it is both complicated and time consuming to successfully implement. Using the new Sepaton VirtuoSO platform, it is able to choose the best form of deduplication for each backup stream on the fly. In this third part of my interview series with Sepaton’s Director of Product Management, Peter Quirk, we discuss how its VirtuoSO platform detects the nature of incoming backup data and then automatically invokes the best deduplication method to deduplicate the data.
