VxFlex OS 3.0 introduced data efficiency capabilities by adding inline compression when using the new Fine Granularity (FG) data layout that uses storage allocation units of 4KB instead of the already existing Medium Granularity (MG) that uses storage allocation units of 1MB.

Fine Granularity (FG) Storage Pools require nodes with NVDIMMs and SSD or NVMe storage media. The current release is currently supported on Linux-based systems only.

VxFlex OS 3.0 does not have deduplication capabilities.
