Deduplication : Spectrum Protect LAN-Free using Spectrum Scale

  • 1.  Deduplication : Spectrum Protect LAN-Free using Spectrum Scale

    Posted 27 days ago

    Hi,

    I want your advice regarding an architecture we are willing to push for one of our customer. We have acquired Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Scale for LAN-Free Backups.

    As I checked using LAN-Free is not supported with container pool storage, so we will not benefit from inline deduplication and we need to go with File legacy deduplication.

    I wanted to know what are the tradeoff of using this topology.  And what is the difference between the two types of deduce : 

    • Deduplication ratio : Do we have the same dedup ratio from container and file storage pools
    • Performance : Doing inline dedup involves some impact on performance, is it more efficient to do post-dedup
    • Any other consideration

    Thank you
