Creating a Storage Policy with Deduplication
Create a storage policy with deduplication as an efficient method to store data that identifies and eliminates duplicate blocks of data during backups.
You can create a storage policy by using the Create a Storage Policy wizard.
Alternatively, you can automate storage policy creation with deduplication by using configuration XML. For more information, see Creating Deduplication Enabled Storage Policy.
Before You Begin
Before creating a storage policy with deduplication, consider the guidelines available in the Deduplication Building Block Guide.
- In the CommCell Browser, expand Policies.
- Right-click the Storage Policy, and then click New Storage Policy.
The Create Storage Policy Wizard opens.
Refer to the following sections during the storage policy creation.
- Click Finish to create the storage policy.
The new storage policy appears under the Storage Policies node.
What to Do Next
Associate a storage policy with a subclient and perform client backups.
For more information on how to run backups, see the documentation for the specific agent.
