HP's online storage dedupe is based on SIS of Microsoft Storage Server. Just attach EVA to a proliant storage server (WSS) and share EVA through CIFS,NFS,FTP.

Re: eva 4400 thin provision & dedupe

First of all i'm not a HP representative.

But i've heard rumours about implementing thin provisioning in the EVAs - and also looking at dedupe.


Personally i think Thinprovisioning will be available shortly, but dedupe wont.

The problem about dedupe is that it costs performance (which is a problem for NetApp as an example) - HPs vision is only to use dedupe on secondary storage, not primary. - But lets see what comes into play when the next generation EVA arrive.
