Compression and deduplication in Storage Systems

Dr. Danny Harnik


With the growing amount of data being used and stored, storage is challenged to keep up with the capacity demands. Modern storage systems have hence adopted various data reduction techniques, mainly the use of loss-less compression and deduplication techniques. In this talk I will introduce the basic techniques being used in the field and address the main challenges and solutions of deploying these techniques in the context of storage systems.
