Session Description: A true conglomerate, EBSCO Industries is made up of 40 multinational business entities and is ranked by Forbes Magazine amongst the top 200 privately held companies. EBSCO's accelerated implementation of sever virtualization and data deduplication technology was concurrent and driven by a desire for more efficient disaster recovery. The company, currently backing up and replicating over 200 TBs of virtualized data using Data Domain systems, will soon virtualize and deduplicate an additional 200 physical servers' worth of data.

"Re-architecting DR and Backup Processes with Data Deduplication Technology"

                     PSS World Medical

Session Description: With $1.7 billion in annual revenues, PSS World Medical, Inc. is a leading distributor of medical equipment and pharmaceutical related products. A key element of the company's DR process was the daily replication of a mission critical 6 TB Oracle database to an offsite co-location services facility. But Fibre Channel disk arrays at both sites were expensive and becoming increasingly inflexible. Using Data Domain's deduplication storage systems, PSS World Medical recaptured its Fibre Channel disk assets and went on to reinvent its backup and DR processes.

                     Technology & Security, Orchid Cellmark, Inc.

Session Description: As organizations backup and protect ever increasing amounts of data, the disk capacity required to store all of the backups has exploded. At the same time organizations are aggressively looking to utilize or expand their usage of disk-based backup solutions to improve service levels for both the backup and the restore operations. Data Deduplication deployments have seen fast adoption and the topic has become one of the largest areas of inquiry in Gartner's Storage practice. This session will explore two different successful implementations of data deduplication solutions.
