Does anyone have any real-world examples of deduplication savings on NetBackup images that are stored on NetApp FC LUNs? I know there are a lot of variables in this equation, though I'm still curious to see how this works out for people.
Not FC, but we use NFS for some of our Netbackup images. Here are the savings that we are seeing on them. The % number at the end is the percentage of savings we are seeing on that volume. First two volumes are 500gb's and last is a 1 TB volume.
I'm not aware of any numbers that we NetBackup numbers but Romeo seems to have some pretty good numbers and someone else might be aware of some NetApp numbers. Deduplication is really protocol independent so we wouldn't expect different numbers based on protocol.
