Hi @OmarBenH 

Every file server maps one-to-one to a container. This mapping allows you to manage compression and erasure coding individually for each file server deployed. Inline compression and erasure coding are turned on by default to save capacity. Deduplication is not recommended.


From Files 3.6 onward, you can control compression on a share-by-share basis. When you create a share, compression is enabled by default.


Please check the following Nutanix files 3.6 Document for more details:

Thank you so much @Mutahir for the quick answer!
