The top level of data management is a ZFS pool (or zpool ). A ZFS system can have multiple pools defined. The vdevs to be used for a pool are specified when the pool is created, and ZFS will use all of the specified vdevs to maximize performance when storing data – a form of striping across the vdevs. Therefore, it is important to ensure that each vdev is sufficiently redundant , as loss of any vdev in a pool would cause loss of the pool, as with any other striping.

Data deduplication originated in backup and secondary storage , although it is possible to dedupe primary data sets. It is particularly helpful to maximize flash storage capacity and performance. Primary storage deduplication occurs as a function of the storage hardware or operating system software.
ASG acquired its deduplication and data protection capabilities from its purchase of Atempo four years ago. It provides source-based block level deduplication and backs up servers, desktops and laptops in remote offices and branch offices.
