File deduplication mechanism #3030
Does a deduplication files mechanism implementation has been considered ?
Any thoughts ?
@davidak : As far as I know btrfs is not considered as production ready (https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/FAQ#Is_btrfs_stable.3F) and I'm not sure btrfs fully support deduplication (https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Deduplication).
@karlitschek : backuppc (http://backuppc.sourceforge.net/) have a deduplication mechanism (http://stanlarson.com/wordpress/?p=118) and I don' t see why this shouldn't/couldn't be done on application layer.
