Far and away the industry leader for this use case is Dell EMC Data Domain systems. With its ability to perform high-speed, variable-length deduplication, Data Domain is able to reduce storage requirements by an average of 10 to 30x making the $/GB of data stored incredibly low. Also, its ability to scale up without increasing management overhead makes it an ideal protection storage platform.
In addition, advanced integration with leading backup and enterprise applications including the Dell EMC Data Protection Suite via DD Boost enables faster, more efficient backup. This further solidifies Data Domain as the hands down leader in the backup use case. Note: Dell EMC NetWorker and DD Boost are SAP-certified and fully integrated with the SAP BACKINT API for SAP HANA and SAP Business suite on Oracle.
