ZFS Adds DeDuplication

Data Deduplication is a big deal, as was shown back in July when EMC spent 2.4B$ to acquire Data Domain. This morning Jeff announced that dedup has been added to ZFS; this has generated quite a bit of buzz in the 'web, although I've yet to see Oracle's stock going up... or Apple changing their mind.

Check Jeff's post and comments; it is a nice read. Also read on disk savings at ZFS-Discuss.


Ha, it's Apple Inc's loss!! They are too distracted with running an online music store anyhow ;)
