  • Deduplication on fat client

    I have a few machines that I've just recently converted to a fat client. After setting up the Data Storage Policy, I was curious, is it best to set up Deduplication on Client or on Media Agent?

    People from Commvault I've spoken to, usually say "on the client".

    This is more of a number issue; i.e. you have 500 servers, more or less equally distributing the load, versus 5 mediaagents, which should be doing the same hashing.

    I personally think it depends on the hardware of your MA. If you have a couple of old SPARC's; DDUP on client. If you have quad-socket, quad-core MA's with 256GB of RAM, DDUP on your MA.

    So; depends on your enviroment.

    If it jams, force it.
    If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
