Nakivo Backup & Replication announced the upcoming version 7.3 of its backup solution for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 environments introducing the Deduplication Appliance support.

Data deduplication is a specific data compression technique for eliminating duplicate copies of repeating data retaining on storage only one unique instance of data. A pointer to the unique data copy replaces redundand data blocks allowing to reduce backup size by saving only unique data blocks to the backup repository.
