Nutanix University Survey: Tell Us What You Think!
Please share the Use cases for above mentioned features.
The table describes which optimizations are applicable to workloads at a high-level:
Generally, Inline compression works very well for almost any workloads. It can be pretty much always enabled.
Deduplication (both cache and capacity) should only be enabled for VDI with persistent desktops. Another use case can be when there are a lot of similar application servers without a lot of data processing. Everything else does not benefit well from deduplication and it can actually make performance worse, because it creates fingerprints for all deduplicated data and stores them in the metadata. That creates some overhead. I recommend to keep it turned off unless it is VDI and persistent desktops are used. Never use deduplication for SQL, Oracle or any other databases as well as any high I/O performance applications.
EC-X is good for some backup storage, archival solutions, Files/Objects. Also, don’t use it for databases and high I/O performance apps.
