One of the most requested features for Storage Spaces Direct was ReFS with Data Deduplication. This feature was released over a year ago, but it was only in the Semi-Annual Release which did not include support for Storage Spaces Direct. The IT community has waited patiently and the time has finally come with Windows Server 2019. This release has added full support for ReFS Data Deduplication into Storage Spaces Direct. What does this mean for you? How about more than 80% space savings on your VMs, Backups, ISO repositories, all running on Cluster Shared Volumes with Storage Spaces Direct. In this session, learn how to set up, configure, and test Data Deduplication with ReFS based on his years of knowledge working with Microsoft storage.

You will learn:

  • ReFS
  • Deduplication
  • Operationalize on Deduplication
