Show Me the Money!

You guessed it – we’re not printing real money, but we’re helping our customers keep a lot more of it in their wallets with the storage savings our technology generates.

In our current “size matters” challenge, we’re asking customers to send us screen shots of their Arcserve UDP environment. The response has been fantastic, and we thank all who have participated. (Learn how you can get involved and be entered to win an Asus Chromebook Flip!)

Within Arcserve UDP, a customer can view one of the management screens to see the level of deduplication and compression that’s performed on its core component, the Recovery Point Server, as well as how much storage has been saved when compared to the amount of data backed up (“source data”). Because Arcserve UPD leverages global, source-side deduplication, users are able to achieve a very high degree of storage savings. Think of it as modern deduplication vs. the older style target deduplication that requires expensive appliances.

There’s a lot of noise in the industry about what to expect from your deduplication, typically with a lot of technical terms and fuzzy math. Let’s keep it simple. See for yourself:

Let’s start small, with 3.85 TB of source backup data:

Let’s get bigger with almost of 111TB of source backup Data

One in French, we couldn’t resist 🙂 145 TB Bravo! (The abbreviation “To” means “TB” in French)

Size really matters when you have half a petabyte to backup (512TB)! Less than 14TB needed with Arcserve UDP.

These screenshots are from current customers; there wasn’t any tweaking in the lab, and only server information was redacted to preserve customer privacy. With Arcserve UDP, our customers achieve high levels of storage savings whether their environments are small or very large.
