Vendors have chosen deduplication to help them drive down the cost of their storage systems. Deduplication, though, is the lazy answer. The real solution is to fix the underlying storage engine. StorONE took a different approach. We invested the first seven years of our company in rewriting the storage engine from the ground up, using new, more efficient algorithms to provide maximum performance and scalability with a minimal hardware investment. The result for our customers is lower storage costs while exceeding performance expectations.
The reality is you don’t need, or even want, deduplication if the storage engine is working efficiently. With a better storage engine, you can improve data integrity and optimize efficiency through better RAID, better snapshots, impact-free storage tiering, and affordable storage tiering.
This white paper will explore a series of alternatives to deduplication, empowered by a better storage engine, that will enable IT professionals to deliver a better storage outcome to their organizations.
