This August 27th I will be speaking in Toronto, Canada on the subject of deduplication. The session will focus on two key technologies: source deduplication--embodied in Avamar for our purposes, and target deduplication--with the EMC 3D deduplication appliances. I will spend some time as well on how each of these technologies is relevant to VMware backup. Finally, I will talk briefly about Total Cost of Ownership of these new deduplication solutions versus traditional backup solutions that use tape.
Yes, it is partially a marketing session, but it will be technical--maybe not to the degree that I sometimes get into in this blog, but certainly not the typical marketing fluff either. Of course, you are welcome to grab me after the session, and we can take the conversation up a notch or down a notch, which ever is your preference. Or you can just show up and heckle!

Lunch n' Learn, August 27
Data De-duplication & Virtualization . . . The latest trends in Backup and Recovery!
Data de-duplication is one of the hottest topics in the industry given its ability to eliminate redundant data and improve data protection. This is especially critical for VMware environments where you have consolidated tens or hundreds of servers down to just a few and your traditional backup software cannot keep pace with your new virtualized environment.
EMC approaches data de-duplication as a feature that can exist in a number of places in the storage infrastructure. The right de-duplication technology and strategy will depend on several factors, including the use case, service level requirements, and what’s currently implemented in your environment.
Learn how backup and disk with data de-duplication can:
* Increase backup and restore service levels
* Decrease cost and complexity
* Improve restore reliability
* Increase data security
* Simplify encryption requirements
* Augment and/or replace tape environments at a comparable cost
