Backup Exec 2010

Duncan MeyersCommented:
It's a variation of Symantec's PureDisk - it's a variable block-length deduplication product.
Some additional information: it can deduplicate the data at source server or at the destination server. It can also interface with hardware deduplication products that support the OST standard.
I don't think it variable block length. You can specifiy the block length in the configuration of the option, but it won't dynamically change the block length while processing the stream, as a DataDomain dedupe box would be capable of doing.
