Data Duplication

Improve storage space use by reducing the duplicated data for a given set of files. Combine the process with a hashing function that generates a fingerprint for the data chunks.


Compare library functions on a basic system to a virtual machine manager in a test environment.


Set up and run a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) that measures the performance of library functions.


Intel collaborated with Qihoo 360* Technology Co. Ltd. to improve the storage infrastructure in their Internet Portal Data Center.
