In addition, with new solution platforms, expanded protocol support, and nearline application support, Data Domain is positioning deduplication storage as a new tier of data center storage for data that customers don't want on tape for performance reasons and don't want on primary storage for cost reasons. As our storage platform expands in scale and scope, we plan to further deepen and broaden this growing position in the data center."
