In the interest of fair reporting
Chris allow me to point out a few things here:
1) "Scaling back" colour and resolution attributes may not be desirable, especially in regulatory and compliance instances.
2) the 5%-10% savings attributed to NetApp dedupe is based on one customer's comment, hardly represents an installed base of tens of thousands of dedupe Users.
3) Penalty-free? Dedupe's value in primary storage is providing reasonable capacity savings without degrading performance. Dissecting files, rescaling, and removing duplicate images, seems like some mighty heavy lifting to me - why no mention of the performance penalty?
