Backup Overview Dashboard

Regardless of the composition of your IT structure, there are likely many ways it could be operating more efficiently, and depending on its size, efficient IT operation can save your enterprise hundreds of thousands or, in some cases, millions of dollars. One of the most common ways enterprises tend to use storage resources inefficiently is by way of redundant files. Even through necessary operations like replication and backup, redundant files and data accumulate over time, taking up a great deal of storage and contributing to unwieldy and inefficient storage resource use.

Fortunately, APTARE IT Analytics provides users with the means to track unnecessary data duplication loads by finding 1:1 ratios.

APTARE IT Analytics has been used to deduplicate massive enterprise IT environments, and some cases, resulted in savings of around $500k. Beyond providing the initial insights needed to fully accomplish deduplication, IT Analytics notifies users when the goal ratio has been achieved, so you know exactly when it should be turned off.

In addition to identifying and compressing redundancies, APTARE IT Analytics also stops new redundancies from occurring. IT Analytics deduplicates files by operating in front of the storage array, identifying the files according to metadata and halting duplication. This method prevents duplications from occurring in the first place.
