Efficient data reduction

Content Software for File User Guide

Part Number

Content Software for File offers a cluster-wide data reduction feature that can be activated for individual filesystems. This capability employs block-variable differential compression and advanced de-duplication techniques across all filesystems to significantly reduce the storage capacity required for user data, resulting in substantial cost savings for customers.

The effectiveness of the compression ratio depends on the specific workload. It is particularly efficient when applied to text-based data, large-scale unstructured datasets, log analysis, databases, code repositories, and sensor data.
