Deduplication is designed to eliminate redundant data in a storage system, and it is designed to reduce the amount of data that must be stored as a backup. It can act at the file or block level.

Executive Summary
Primary storage in small and large companies alike is growing at 5% - 1% a year. And, according to IDC researchconducted in the second half of 8, the amount of global digital data created and stored on a worldwide basis hasincreased over 3,% in just three years. In addition, many multiple-site organizations are working to consolidatedata assets along with system consolidations (including virtualization) to create a less energy-intensive collectionof assets that fit in a reduced physical space.
Carrying costs associated with storing and managingall that data on disk or tape can be cut dramatically by deduplication
The benefits of data deduplication have been well publicized; but in the most basic sense they enable anorganization to:
•
store far more backup data for a given expenditure or 
•
substantially lengthen disk purchase intervals,
•
store to disk cost efficiently, taking advantage of its speed and eliminating the need for tape
•
effectively reduce its backup window.If deduplication is such a cost effective data reduction technique, why doesn’t every IT organization use it? Untilrecently, the cost of proprietary hardware deduplication products has priced large and small organizations out of consideration. That same cost concern forced the relatively small percentage of organizations who
could 
affordit to reserve it only for server data, despite the fact that workstation data frequently represents half of the entiredata owned by an organization. However, the advent of software-only deduplication has substantially loweredthe threshold for purchase, making it attractive to organizations of all sizes, and allowing workstation data to bededuplicated as well.In this white paper, we’ll define deduplication, detail its benefits and make a business case for using it in Windows
