Enterprise data storage continues to grow—with roughly a quarter of network-attached storage (NAS) and storage attached network (SAN) users reporting annual growth rates at more than 40 percent.* Controlling storage costs from original data cre-ation until data disposition is a growing challenge for IT organizations.

Data deduplication is being used for backup and helps to reduce the amount of disk, tape and net-work resources required for data protection. Now that IT has gotten a handle on server sprawl and the challenges that come with data protection, it is time to deal with primary storage growth that is increasing at a rate faster than IT can manage.
