Advanced data management functionality

No, those are a bit beyond the scope of the SSD. We strongly recommend you continue to manage your Backup, DR, and Ransomware recovery with companies specialized in those areas.

To clarify, we are not deduplicating. We are using hardware compression engines to perform lossless, block-level compression at full NVMe data rates. Dedupe is best done on very large datasets and at the file or object level. The ScaleFlux CSDs are block storage devices that do compression on small blocks of data (4KB blocks). This granularity of compression allows for line-rate compression and decompression to meet the needs of latency-sensitive applications.

Nope! Running the ScaleFlux drives in production does not require you to use them in your Disaster Recovery (DR) or in other parts of your local infrastructure for that matter. Your DR simply needs to have enough capacity to handle your data set.
