Acronis Deduplication Calculator Measures Storage Savings

Driven by overwhelming customer acceptance of the data deduplication capabilities in the newly-launched Acronis Backup & Recovery 10, Acronis has unveiled an online calculator to quickly estimate the storage savings an organisation can achieve using the deduplication technology to cut storage requirements.
  • 03 August, 2009 12:45

<p>The deduplication calculator prompts the user for the number of servers and workstations being backed up, the data change rate, and the cost of data storage. Based on the information, the user can get estimates of the storage space savings, the storage cost savings and the percentage of savings through deduplication.</p>
<p>As an example of the benefits of deduplication, a customer with 10 servers and 2TB of data that changes 5 percent per day and is kept for four weeks, will save about $25,000 in storage costs annually. Acronis Backup &amp; Recovery 10 software licences with premium support would only cost $21,250 for this particular IT environment.</p>
<p>“Data deduplication is one of the hottest technologies in IT because it can save an organisation hundreds of thousands of dollars. This online calculator is designed to provide businesses with an effective tool to get an understanding of their storage costs and measure the potential savings with deduplication,” said Bill Taylor-Mountford, General Manager of Acronis Australia and New Zealand. “By introducing an affordable software-based deduplication solution, we expect that businesses of all sizes in ANZ will be able to benefit from this technology.”</p>
<p>In announcing Acronis Backup &amp; Recovery 10, Acronis expanded its award-winning, patented disk imaging and bare-metal restore technology to meet the needs of both small and large organisations through a new user interface, improved virtualisation support, enhanced operation manageability and increased scalability.</p>
<p>“Acronis Backup &amp; Recovery 10’s new integrated data deduplication and impressive group policy management capabilities make this product unique. The software deduplication offers similar compression rates to appliance-based deduplication solutions and has vastly decreased the volume of backups, in turn reducing storage space requirements,” said Marko Tarvainen, a global telecom specialist Finn Telecom, a beta tester of the product. “In addition, the new central management console and intuitive interface makes it much easier to oversee tasks.”</p>
<p>Acronis has also announced a limited-time competitive upgrade program of as much as 50 percent off for customers who move to Acronis Backup &amp; Recovery 10 from other backup solutions. Please contact Acronis or its partners for eligibility.</p>
