StarWind VTL and deduplication

Postby rjtaylor » Thu Dec 13, 2018 9:41 pm

Hello StarWind staff and users,

I'm looking for information regarding StarWind VTL and its deduplication feature. The copy at https://www.starwindsoftware.com/starwi ... pe-library reads "StarWind VTL implements both deduplication and compression space reduction technologies," so I requested and received a license for the Free edition (thank you) to perform a proof of concept. I had my backup software send a bunch of highly repetitive data to the StarWind VTL but disk utilization indicates no data reduction is occurring.

Are there more steps required to enable the "deduplication and compression" features? Or maybe dedup is only available in the Standard and Enterprise versions?


Thanks for any help,
RJ
