Hi.

The Nutanix theory in the bible - https://nutanixbible.com/

Specifically for your question:
1. Chapter "Native Software-based Encryption" "Figure. Data Encryption - Transform Application".
2. The head of the "Elastic Dedupe Engine".

This is what concerns theory, in practice, I personally do not agree yet - https://next.nutanix.com/how-it-works-22/deduplication-function-works-inadequately-33102.
