The SNIA Data Protection and Capacity Optimization (DPCO) Committee was created to foster the growth and success of the market for data protection and capacity optimization technologies. Data protection means assurance that data is usable and accessible for authorized purposes only, with acceptable performance, and in compliance with applicable requirements. Capacity optimization refers to methods which reduce the consumption of space require to store a data set and its scope and is not limited to secondary storage.
The goals of the DPCO are:
Data deduplication can enhance Disaster Recovery (DR) because deduplication significantly reduces the amount of band width required to replicate data.
In this presentation topics will include:
- Trends in vendor deduplication design
- Practical deduplication of primary storage
- Using deduplication to reduce storage network traffic
- Pervasive deduplication across storage tiers
- Deduplication implications with storage array cache and SSD's
- Integration of Data Compression and deduplication
Deep dive: The Register has teamed up with the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) for a series of deep dive articles. Each month, the SNIA will deliver a comprehensive introduction to basic storage networking concepts. The first article explores data protection.
In this tutorial we will establish a standard definition of data archiving, forces driving it's adoption in enterprise environments and the benefits to be achieved with an optimized approach.

BYOD. If that acronym doesnt strike fear into the heart of every chief exec or finance director, it should. Short for Bring Your Own Device, theres been a proliferation of new technology thats take the business world by storm; the tablet. More portable than a laptop, more connected than a mobile phone, these cross-over devices are incredibly popular, and rightly so. The flexibility they provide is truly amazing. Give a presentation, take photographs, jot down notes on the move, browse the internet, use business email and make calls, all from one easily transported device.

George Crump, Senior Analyst at Storage Switzerland, writes: This morning at SNW Europe I chaired a series of discussions focused on what the next generation data protection solutions would look like. Opinions were offered by a variety of vendors including Quantum, Spectra Logic, Oracle, SNIA and end user Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research, each making recommendations as to what the future of data protection looked like. While each presentation had its own unique suggestions one resounding theme was apparent. Tape, yes TAPE will be a part of the next generation data protection strategy.
