Data means a lot to every business. To maintain requirements from the data storage, IT organization must learn to manage data storage effectively. The most common case in the world is data growth results in seperate copies of the same data with disparate users, where storage system deduplication technology can offer a great increase in storage efficiency with saving the
cost. Generally, data deduplication is a specialized form of data compression technique, typically to improve storage utilization. As btrfs has a good infrastructure to fit shared data by naturally supported block back-reference, this'd be a good start for data deduplication. This talk will show how to implement a btrfs specific data deduplication and how practical it is.
For this session, there'd be some filesystem specific content, so for the target audience, it'd be better to have a basic knowledge base of filesystem.
