BridgeHead Software announced at RSNA 2013 new deduplication capabilities for hospitals that need to move some or all of their backup copies to a remote disaster recovery location.
The Deduplication for Backup and Recovery helps lower storage costs and administrative work and frees up floor space in the data center, the company said.
BridgeHead with embedded HP Catalyst software supports inline data reduction at the backup source. The disk target can be local to the hospital application or available over a wide-area network connection at a remote site, the company said.
The solution aims to optimize network use to enable remote disaster recovery protection replacing tape rotation, free disk space and extend the life of the storage systems, and enable backup to the cloud.
