From Deduplicated storage spaces 2012 to Object Storage

Post by frankive » Dec 04, 2019 9:23 am

We have a customer running a Veeam server with 2012 R2 and a JBOD enclosure. This enclouse is direct attached (of course) to the Veeam server and formatted with NTFS. It also utilizes Storage Spaces (mirror) with Deduplication eabled. This have given this customer a deduplication rate for over 80% during the years. Very valuable for GFS and full backup complaince. We are talking app 2TB production data which uses around 10 TB effective disk space. If we dehydrate it and copies it into a share it will be around 150 TB.

SO.... they do not want to invest in a new JBOD (out of warrany 5+ years) and want to leverage the cloud and the obect storage for storing these archive data looks good. IF they start from scratch....
Is it possible copy this data to an object storage (Azure) and still keep the restore points in the GFS jobs as it works today? Does Object Storage deduplicate at all?

Yes, we deduplicate GFS when offloading to object storage.
