Backup compression and storage deduplication: A perfect match?

Quest sponsored on-demand webinar

Webcast Abstract

You donít have to sacrifice the things that simplify backup and recovery just because you introduce new technology. Take backup compression, for example. Maybe management has made an investment in storage de-duplication devices and now wants you to start using them for your SQL Server backups - and stop using backup compression.

But is giving up backup compression really going to help management achieve its goals? Join us for a live webcast where we discuss how backup de-duplication works, the pros and cons of using backup compression, and how you can justify why you may not want to give up backup compression at all.
