How Deduplication Appliances Work

Deduplication appliances reduce data size by excluding repeated data at the source. They are usually optimized for receiving data in fewer data streams and work best with sequential I/O and large I/O block sizes.

Optimized Storage in NAKIVO Backup & Replication

NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers a special repository type optimized for deduplication appliances. The repository’s architecture is based on sequential read/write operations through a limited number of data streams.

Best Performance

Using deduplication appliances as backup targets with NAKIVO Backup & Replication can significantly reduce backup data size with source-side deduplication. Achieve optimal performance with:
Lower storage space usage (reduce by up to 20 times or more)
Less bandwidth consumption
Higher backup / replication speed. NAKIVO customers reach backup speeds of up to 3.2 GB/s when using deduplication appliances as backup targets. This speed is 53 times higher than the average speed of VM backups to regular repositories.

Incremental with Full Backups

The optimized repository in NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to create incremental backups with periodic full backups. Full backups can help you achieve faster recovery and better storage management with the entire backup data set stored as a single file.
