FEATURE REQUEST: Global Deduplication Report

Having the ability to produce an infrastructure-wide deduplication report would be very handy.

This week we had to provide such information to management to justify moving from our current backup provider to Veeam, as they wanted to compare storage savings. Unfortunately B&R only seems to have this on a per-backup job basis.

This report wouldn't have to be anything fancy. Just showing the following...

- Raw backup data (how much storage would be used for all restore points, if there was no compression or dedupe).
- Compression ratio.
- Dedupe ratio.
- Resulting Raw/at-rest storage being used.
- Split out per storage repository and/or as a whole.

Other vendors provide this. Having a nice report stating, for example, "100TB raw backup files | 30TB used after compression/dedupe | 70% reduction/savings of space used" goes a long way to justify infrastructure projects 8)

This could even be a standard window under the Backup Infrastructure or Storage Infrastructure nodes in the B&R Console.
