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.
