Details
NetApp HCIs data deduplication and compression features are always on and cannot be disabled as it is an integral component of the platform architecture providing both performance and efficiency. The fact that the storage subsystem has been completely separated from the compute subsystem in NetApp, deduplication and compression does not substract from compute resources. It also provides end-user simplicity.
