Client side dedupe clarification...how (storage side of the setup)
Hello Forum Members
This is most likely me not understanding whats going on, but Im failing to see the wood from the trees regarding client side dedupe.
I know its potentially my solution - lots of slow clients on slow networks - but I cant see how to configure it on the media server end..can anyone enlighten me? I'm thinking...some storage attached to a media server, but I cant see the right guide...not advanced disk, not puredisk, not openstorage, not shared disk , not basic disk, so ....which?
I'm hoping I can get some cost effective disk say ...zpool or perhaps zfs woulod be my choice, license it and then use it in a stunit and then throw my clients data at it...have I gotten the wrong end of the stick? Cost effective is important aka cheap.
I'm Sol 10 7.1,64bit soon to be 7.5 so I see 64Tb maximum , front end licensed, 1G mem/TB disk etc but not the how to and options of the storage.I have a few media servers already that are potential candidates.
Thanks in advance,Jim.
