WWOS 2.0 indexes all data, local and in the cloud, to provide maximum deduplication. Active Directory support allows Riverbed Whitewater to easily integrate with other apps and Windows management. The system supports up to 32 TB of deduplicated local storage and 160 TB of deduplicated cloud storage, a capacity increase that represents a total of 1.6 PB and 4.8 PB of source data. WWOS 2.0 increases data ingest to 1.5 TB per hour for faster processing of larger backups, a 50% improvement over previous models.

The system can help eliminate tape and reduce costs by connecting data protection applications with cloud service providers without having to change existing infrastructure or policies.
