To ensure the smallest amount of data is transferred to the Metiix Cloud and ultimately stored there, we deploy an advanced block-level de-duplication and compression technology at every site. Every file that passes through our Metiix client is sifted for duplicate files already protected. We will then only send the incremental block changes to files that are appended or modified. We will also only send and store the unique files across an environment, including operating systems and data bases. 

Performing de-duplication and compression at the block level, before transmitting data to the Metiix Cloud allows for the tightest algorithm possible when storing your mission critical data. Doing a block-level incremental on files, complemented with common file elimination across all servers participating, leads to less LAN/WAN traffic and less Metiix Online Cloud Storage consumed.
