    This IBM® Redbooks® publication describes the IBM solution for data deduplication, the IBM System Storage® TS7650G ProtecTIER® Deduplication Gateway, and the IBM System Storage TS7650 ProtecTIER Deduplication Appliance. This solution consists of IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2.3 software and the IBM System Storage TS7650G Deduplication Gateway (3958-DD1 and DD3) hardware, as well as the IBM System Storage TS7650 Deduplication Appliance (3958-AP1). They are designed to address the disk-based data protection needs of enterprise data centers.

    We introduce data deduplication and IP replication and describe in detail the components that make up IBM System Storage TS7600 with ProtecTIER. We provide extensive planning and sizing guidance that enables you to determine your requirements and the correct configuration for your environment. We then guide you through the basic setup steps on the system and on the host, and describe all operational tasks that might be required during normal day-to-day operation or when upgrading the TS7650G and TS7650.

    This publication is intended for system programmers, storage administrators, hardware and software planners, and other IT personnel involved in planning, implementing, and using the IBM deduplication solution, as well as anyone seeking detailed technical information about the IBM System Storage TS7600 with ProtecTIER.
