Nutanix ADSF allows data reducation technologies across all tiers of storage including memory, performance and capacity tiers as well as All-Flash.
Adaptive: With post-process deduplication, data is intelligently qualified first. Data candidates with low or no matches are not deduplicated. This avoids metadata bloat due to non-dedupable candidates and unnecessary use of CPU and memory resources.
