Technical Paper: StarWind Virtual SAN® for vSphere 2-Node Hyperconverged Scenario – deduplication and compression configuration

StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) for VMware vSphere comes as a pre-packaged Linux virtual machine (VM), creating a VM-centric and high-performing storage pool for VMware Cluster. VDO is a piece of software that provides inline block-level deduplication, compression, and thin provisioning capabilities for primary storage. VDO installs within the Linux device mapper framework where it takes ownership of existing block devices and remaps these to new, higher-level block devices with data-efficiency capabilities. Find out from this guide how to configure a VDO volume with enabled deduplication and compression on top of StarWind Virtual SAN Virtual Machine with your VMware vSphere.
