Allows you to benefit from built-in deduplication features designed in filesystems like ZFS, and others that support fixed-block deduplication. Bacula’s Aligned Volume Deduplication technology offers an alternate (additional) Volume format that is aligned on specific block boundaries. This allows an underlying filesystem to efficiently deduplicate the Bacula Enterprise Deduplication Optimized Volume format. Aligned Volume Format Deduplication is an effective solution for ZFS deduplication, and is also supported with Netapp data ONTAP 8.0.1 and higher. It allows you to backup hypervisors faster and lower storage space.
