Can someone please briefly explain to me what avamr deduplication is and how it works ?
Also what are the benefits of having avamar deduplication in your NetWorker enviroment ?
What are the requirements to implement avamar deduplication, do you need any additional hardware/disks ?
Im running Windows 2008 R2 NetWorker server with version 7.5.2
Backing up SQL server DB, VCB and system backups.
1 Robotic library Scalar i2000
any input would greatly be appreciated!!
Take a look at the following papers by The Clipper Group. They should give you a good overview of NetWorker and Avamar:
