NetApp Deduplication Deployed on More Than 30,000 Systems Worldwide

NetApp deduplication has been delivered to more than 5,000 customers worldwide, comprising more than 30,000 systems

NetApp announced that deduplication adoption among its customer base continues to grow at an impressive rate. Already one of the fastest growing technologies in the company's history, NetApp deduplication has been delivered to more than 5,000 customers worldwide, comprising more than 30,000 systems containing 385PB of storage capacity. With NetApp's unique deduplication technology, customers are able to eliminate duplicate data across all tiers of storage, allowing them to combat data proliferation while creating a more efficient storage infrastructure.

In addition to NetApp's complete family of FAS systems, the power of its deduplication technology was also recently extended to NetApp V-Series virtualized storage systems and Virtual Tape Library (VTL) systems. As a result, NetApp deduplication can now be applied to storage systems manufactured by EMC, HP, Hitachi Data Systems, and others, providing customers with a deduplication solution spanning primary, backup, and archival storage applications.

"Users are under growing pressure to increase the efficiency of their storage assets," said Benjamin Woo, vice president and senior analyst at IDC. "One way of achieving this is by boosting utilization levels by leveraging deduplication in newer, nontraditional use cases. NetApp has made considerable progress by delivering over 30,000 systems with its deduplication technology, and, as such, it has validated the fact that deduplication can be applied across a wide variety of applications and storage tiers."

The City of Hartford, a NetApp customer, is Connecticut's largest metropolitan area, with over one million residents. In its attempt to become one of the nation's most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly cities, the City of Hartford has developed a cleaner, more cost-effective IT infrastructure. NetApp deduplication technology has played a major role in this initiative.

NetApp deduplication strengthens NetApp's portfolio of space-saving technologies, which includes thin provisioning, Snapshot copies, and flexible clones. Like most of these space-saving technologies, NetApp deduplication is a feature that comes at no extra cost.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
