Summary
Efficiency (full) and Performance (limited)
Details
Deduplication and compression can provide two main advantages:
1. Efficiency (space savings)
2. Performance (speed)

Most storage solutions place emphasis on efficiency.

Nutanix ECP provides two deduplication methods:
1. Inline Performance Deduplication: performs near-line deduplication in order to provide for space savings on the performance tier (RAM/SSD), thus allowing more hot data to be stored here.
2. MapReduce Deduplication: performs post-process deduplication in order to provide for space savings on the capacity tier (HDD), thus allowing for more cold data to be stored here.

Nutanix ECP provides two compression methods:
1. Inline Compression: performs immediate compression on random writes in order for space savings on the performance tier (SSD), thus allowing for more hot data to be stored here.
2. MapReduce Compression: performs post-process deep compression in order to provide for additional space savings on the capacity tier (SSD/HDD), thus allowing for more cold data to be stored here.
