I don’t think I’m unique when I look at any technology solution and go down the list of features to make sure all the most important ones are there. One of the recurring themes today is data deduplication. When we look at a solution, too many times we simply look for the check box that a feature like deduplication is in place. But, deduplication can exist in a number of different ways, each of which can have significant impacts on its results; as well as the performance of the solution.
