Hi alunkal

I was able to get you an answer from the team - 'storage efficiency' is related to dedup and compression.

Hi alunkal

Essentially, it is the benefit from compression and dedup. At an average, we see between 2:1 and 1.5:1 ratios after storage efficiency. Depending on workloads, it could be a high as 8:1 or no benefit if the workload is already compressed and deduped.
