ok..got it now.

The deduplication from VDP is at source. Data is dedupe'd first and then copied to target

Hi,

VDP uses variable length deduplication.

VDP admin guide provides some details of it.

Sorry i did not get you.. (pre-copy/post-copy) ?

On the deduplication ratio, i could see VDP offering if much better than VDR.

The deduplication algorithm used in VDP is powered by Avamar(a proven dedupe technology)
