EMC Isilon SmartDedupe
EMC Isilon SmartDedupe software allows enterprises to gain new efficiency and reduce their storage costs without sacrificing data protection or management simplicity.
Reduce Storage Costs
By decreasing the amount of physical storage required by up to 35 percent, SmartDedupe helps to lower your storage capacity, power and cooling, and data center space requirements.
Deduplicate Without Impacting Performance
SmartDedupe uses a postprocess deduplication approach that stores new data before analyzing it for possible duplications. As a result, initial file write or modify performance isn’t impacted.
With SmartDedupe, you’re in control. SmartDedupe allows you to run deduplication on a specific directory or across an entire cluster. You can also get an estimate of the space savings possible in a particular directory or set of directories before you actually perform the data deduplication.
Automate the Process
Organizations can run SmartDedupe either on a manual, on-demand basis or automatically, on a predefined schedule of your choice. For example, you can choose to run deduplication regularly during off hours to minimize any potential operational impact.
Track Your Savings
You can easily monitor the amount of disk space saved on an ongoing basis by viewing your cluster capacity usage chart and deduplication reports summary table with easy-to-use SmartDedupe management tools.
