A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11928030B2) outlines a method for creating deduplicated copies of data objects. The process involves receiving a copy of the data objects, deduplicating the copy by hashing segments to generate fingerprints, comparing these fingerprints to those in deduplication storage, and creating a list of identifiers for corresponding segments. Subsequently, a deduplicated backup copy is created without reassembling the original copy, utilizing a second list of identifiers and a catalog mapping entries to their respective data objects. The method also includes reassembling the copy, replicating it to a storage device, and receiving data objects via standard interfaces or a customized script on a production server.

Furthermore, the patent extends to non-transitory computer-readable media and computer systems implementing the deduplication method. These systems involve processors, storage mediums, and instructions for creating deduplicated copies of data objects. The process includes deduplicating the copy, creating lists of identifiers, generating a backup copy without reassembly, and utilizing a catalog for mapping entries. Additional steps involve reassembling the copy using segments from deduplication storage, replicating the reassembled copy to a storage device, and receiving data objects through standard interfaces or customized scripts. The identifiers are stored in different formats in the lists, enhancing the efficiency and organization of the deduplication process.
