    Inline deduplication is the removal of redundancies from data before or as it is being written to a backup device. 

  • post-processing deduplication (PPD)

    Post-processing deduplication (PPD), also known as asynchronous de-duplication, is the analysis and removal of redundant data after a backup is complete and data has been written to storage.
