Optimize Cloud Backup Costs

As companies have become more savvy about cloud costs, their reasons to use the cloud have shifted. In many cases, cloud usage has focused on data protection.

Other times your application lives in your own server rooms and you want to leverage the cloud to store your backups. This tech brief explores these scenarios and shows ways to:

  • Use source-side, variable-block deduplication
  • Reduce storage costs
  • Maximize the efficiency of cloud storage
