The amount of information that keeps our businesses afloat increases every day: Emails on our servers, Excel files, PowerPoint files, Word files, ERP databases, VDI environments and most of all, our virtual machines that support all this. Microsoft published a study where it found that by 2020, the information created by each person may exceed 5TB. With all this information that is created every day, we as IT administrators are responsible for storing and protecting it in an optimal and reliable way, using compression and deduplication technologies.

Since Microsoft Windows Server’s 2012 release, we have a role that we can install on any server where we store information and deduplicate it, which reduces the size of the information stored by 50% or more.

This white paper shows the new features of the Windows Server 2016 regarding deduplication, as well as the advantages offered and how to activate and use it with Veeam® Backup and Replication™. We will also find some good practices and tips on using deduplication and Veeam.
