I was researching backup solutions when I’ve found restic because of the support of B2 cloud storage.
One thing I’ve noticed is that resting performs the worst when comparing deduplication performance according to this benchmark made by Duplicacy.
According to this restic wastes A LOT of more space making its dedup strategy almost useless when compared to attic and others? It’s ~2.5x bigger!
I would like to know the following before using restic:
- Is this benchmark updated and does restic still under performs on deduplication?
- Any plans to support the famous lock-free deduplication algorithm or to improve the current one?
