Re: Enrico Signoretti Sums it up perfectly

I'd agree Paul if 3Par had compression and could dedupe at the flash layer data blocks below 16k, but it can't. We ran a POC on large a P2V Citrix environment and saw zero dedupe. The HP answer was to use double-take to re-size the file system to 16k on all 700 vm's. 1 vm took over 2 hours.

No thanks, we went for a build from the ground up AFA, not a retro fit job.
