Deduplication and compression
Optimizes the
utilization of SSD
capacity, improving
performance
Deduplication is done
at the block level;
across all volumes
within a cloud account
Fingerprints are
content addressable,
enabling transparent
capacity expansion to
Azure storage
On-premise data
capacity can be
increased by 2x – 5x
based on the type of
data stored
Minimizes size of data
transfer and storage in
Azure. Also, reduces
data download and
recovery times
No duplicated blocks
between snapshots
