Efficiency
Details
VxFlex OS 3.0 introduces 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.

VxFlex OS 3.0 compression allows better efficiency in thin-provisioned volumes and snapshots.
