NetApp Customers Implement Deduplication Technology On More Than 37,000 Systems Worldwide
SYDNEY, Australia - 14 May 2009
- NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) today announced that customers
continue to adopt deduplication at a rapid pace. 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. Through April of this year, 7,200 NetApp customers
activated deduplication on over 37,000 systems, representing an
astounding 514 petabytes in usable storage capacity.
In addition to NetApp's complete family of
FAS systems, the power of its deduplication technology is also
available on NetApp V-Series virtualized storage systems and
Virtual Tape Library (VTL) systems. As a result, NetApp
deduplication can be applied to storage systems manufactured by
EMC, HP, Hitachi Data Systems, and others, providing customers with
the industry's only end-to-end deduplication solution, spanning
primary, backup, and archival storage applications.
"With budgets constricted across IT
organisations, NetApp continues to offer the most compelling
deduplication solutions to help our customers increase storage
efficiency and save time and money," said Patrick Rogers, vice
president of Solutions Marketing, NetApp.
NetApp deduplication strengthens NetApp's
portfolio of space-saving technologies, which include 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. NetApp is the only major
storage and data management vendor to embed deduplication
technology in all of its unified storage systems.
