This following are the new features that provide you a simple way to view efficiency ratios for All Flash FAS (AFF) systems. Ratios consider the following efficiency features included in ONTAP:

  • In-line data compaction (applies to ONTAP 9 and later)

  • In-line aggregate deduplication (applies to ONTAP 9.2 and later)

  • In-line volume deduplication

  • In-line compression

  • Volume snapshots and clones

  • LUN and file clones

  • Background deduplication

    • Background volume deduplication

    • Background aggregate deduplication (Automatically enabled via automatic deduplication schedule starting ONTAP 9.3)

More details about ratios are in Appendix at the end of this document.
