| Question of the Month: Is there any reason why you wouldn't use data deduplication?
--John Boden, storage engineering, Visa Europe
"It may not be worth the time and expense to implement."
"Two reasons: Dedupe can actually increase the size of your stored data when you have a compressed stream going through a device to your SAN. The second is compliance: One would essentially be rendering any data headed for a write-once vault corrupt by removing redundant data."
"No. We have been overtaken by high-profile projects and need to look into options to alleviate our backup and storage concerns."
