Data deduplication has been around for years and comes in many forms. Most people think about expensive storage arrays when they talk about deduplication, but that is certainly not the only type of data deduplication technology.

This white paper examines the data deduplication technology embedded in Windows Server 2012 R2 and highlights the benefits it can bring to your environment. The author, Veeam expert Mike Reseller, guides you from Windows Server 2012 R2 data deduplication architecture and overview to specific scenarios and use cases.

You will also learn about:
  • Data deduplication methods
  • How to start and enable deduplication on Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Using PowerShell scripts to optimize data deduplication jobs in Windows Server 2012 R2
