Hey Community,

can someone clarify the compression and de duplication features that come with the starter edition of AOS? I can see on the Nutanix website: https://www.nutanix.com/products/software-options that starter has a check box beside inline compression and inline de duplication, but not besides compression and de duplication,

 

Does this mean with a starter license environments can still take advantage of the storage efficiencies of de duplication and compression (on write)?

 

Is there any solution briefs that go into detail regarding the compression and de duplication features of the starter edition.

 

Best Regards,

Hi @SicWitIT 

With starter you will get inline compression & deduplication - how much of capacity / storage savings you get is dependant on the type of data. 

If the data you cluster is hosting is a good candidate for compression or dedupe, you will see savings. 

Yes - you are correct with starter you get in-line compression and inline deduplication.

Hope that answers your query
