Benefits
• 100 percent backup and restore success rates
• 10:1 reduction in backup data volume with deduplication, reducing storage costs
• 90 percent reduction in tape usage and vaulting requirements
• 94 percent less time spent managing backup and recovery
• Fourfold increase in backup storage capacity with lower TCO
