Infortrend Deduplication in Action - Creating more NAS storage space

Today we explore deduplication on the Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 NAS, and toss in a little compression testing too.

Introduction

The last time we saw the Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 was in our review that covered the layout and the performance under traditional tests. What we didn't manage to test was the performance with deduplication, a feature unique to the EonNAS Pro Series at these price points.

Deduplication or dedupe is a compression technique that removes bits of repeating data. The more often a string is repeated, the smaller the overall file and files can become. While dedupe is a form of compression, Infortrend's NAS also has LZJB algorithm data compression that can be used in conjunction with dedupe. Together, you can put more data on your NAS than what you might not normally be able to.

In most cases, that means more data than your HDDs can normally hold. Here at TweakTown, that means we're going to use solid state drives and take a run at building a flash storage NAS that, with dedupe and compression, would be viable for storing data long term.
