Block Deduplication and Compression with VDO

Feedback form is now closed.
Deduplication and compression have been core requests for Linux storage, but delivering these at performance and scale has been technologically difficult. The new kvdo device-mapper module, based on more than a decade of development, is a tried and tested solution that meets this need. kvdo provides fast, scalable, inline deduplication, compression, and 4K-granularity thin provisioning for any Linux block device. These benefits transfer to file systems and applications using the underlying storage.

VDO is simple to deploy across many use cases, but a few caveats apply due to the unpredictability of actual space free. This session will provide an overview of VDO and its deployment, a review of usage considerations, and a first-level introduction to its implementation internals.
