"A new open source project, dubbed Opendedup, has appeared with
the goal of creating a deduplication-based file system for Linux
"The project’s developer Sam Silverberg says today’s
deduplication solutions only solve the problem of storing
deduplicated data, not reading and writing inline data.
"SDFS is designed to support the needs of virtual environments
including the VMware, Xen, and KVM hypervisors.
"The filesystem can deduplicate inline (at a line speed of
150Mbps or greater) or periodically based on needs and this can be
changed on the fly. Support for file or folder level snapshots is
also a feature.
