Using Data Domain as Syncplicity backend

Hi all, I have a situation where we are considering using Data Domain NFS shares as the backend for our Syncplicity solution. Just curious to get some opinions on the downsides or caveats of this.

I can imagine that performance will not be optimal due to the nature of Data Domain disks/RAID and that we will be inline de-duping all data from Syncplicity constantly which will tax cpu/ram in addition to our backup workload.

However, any reason why this would not work?

Re: Using Data Domain as Syncplicity backend

Theoretically yes it should work.  But keep in mind the DD was not designed to be a nearline storage device and is not supported as such.  So yes you would most likely have performance issues.
