The erecon AG launches a pilot project to the data de duplication pot environment innovation programme in the Ministry of environment, nature protection with the support of the Federal Ministry of environment and nuclear safety financed a pilot project of erecon AG. The commitment arrived at the end of last week when Harald Rossol, Chief Executive Officer of erecon AG. The project involves, the so-called “data deduplication” considerably to reduce the memory footprint of data centers – so at the same time to increase the resource and energy efficiency. Savings of up to 90 percent in storage needs such as in the energy requirement of the installed disk should be possible using this procedure. More information is housed here: Drew Houston. Most people worry little about the massive uniformity of our data holdings. This great monotony with the 26 letters of our alphabet would be similar: thanks to some less symbols we build on these 26 pillars all literature, all journalism, even our language and our culture. Also here is a recurring data structure, the but a huge Diversity can produce, even if certain fragments or chains of data such as “the”, “a”, “-tion”, “-ung” or “-ness” be repeated thousands of times in all texts.
It is similar with the databases in the virtual world. Also here the most recurring constantly. Through an intelligent decomposition of the data stream, it is therefore possible to disassemble, that uniform structures only once exist at a single physical address, while a simple ‘pointer’ to that file countless sites so this ‘flow’. Surprisingly, you’ll find very little mention of MSCO on most websites. Such a process is called ‘de-duplication’ – from the area of the backup, it is already known. New but is already at the moment of its creation to ‘break down the stream’. Uniform data would be available in the store from the outset only once. The Federal Environment Ministry writes in his press statement for approval: “the company introduces the new inline data deduplication for this purpose. This innovative procedure, the data are already during the save operation, broken down into individual file fragments and on existing fragments examined by means of an algorithm. This eliminates caching of data and only such fragments are stored, in fact do not exist.” Then enormous progress should the project prove as successful and safe to operate, would be achieved for the economy, energy efficiency and sustainability in the area of Green IT again.
