Dedupe2 Quote:

"The idea behind the show was to provide a forum where members of the storage community could submit questions about deduplication. The goal of the show is to educate them on how Dedupe 2.0 will benefit them in the future. Information has been swirling around in both the media and on blogs regarding Dedupe 2.0 and this forum is a way to provide an open dialogue with a wide audience and cut through some of the industry noise." ~ Mike Ivanov, host of Dedupe 411 on
