StorPool Distributed Storage (StorPool) does not have any native deduplication and/or compression capabilities. StorPool has implemented only those space saving features that do not compromise storage performance or take significant amounts of RAM/CPU. This means performance is the primary consideration.
StorPool provides the following space saving features:
- thin provisioning;
- zeroes detection.
The measured level of space saving delivered by these features is up to 6 times (minimum measured gain is 2 times) for virtualized public/private environments.
