Windows Server 2012 Data Deduplication

July 4, 2013

This is a fantastic feature, and Windows IT Pro (my favourite magazine even now that it is an e-magazine!) have just done a great article going through everything about it and how to set it up. Very well worth a read if you have a few minutes spare as this feature is very useful. One thing to be aware of though is you need a supported backup product if you want to back it up for instance BackupExec 2012 does not support it and backing up the deduplicated data doesn’t give you a restorable backup. You need Backup Exec 2012 R2 which is currently in beta! Bit late Symantec!
