The 1st in a series of Square Mile Seminars took place Thursday 27th May – hosted by S3 at 1 Threadneedle St, EC2R 8AW.
This was a 2 hour morning session which we hope to become a regular feature amongst IT professionals working within the City of London.
I was chatting to a potential customer the other day, looking at the pros and cons of de-duplication methods and it’s clear to me that most people still view de-duplication with a bit of trepidation.
Data volumes in all organisations continue to grow relentlessly. Estimates vary between 50 – 70% a year.
Symantec note that “As companies integrate disk and discover its benefits as a more active component of their back up environments, they soon realize that they cannot keep all of their backup data on disk. Despite declines in the cost of disk storage, they still lack the available capacity to recover most data from disk locally in the data centre. Data de duplication is a disk-based technology that enables companies to eliminate duplicate backup data and significantly decrease the storage, and in some cases bandwidth, consumption.”
