[PLUG] Opendedup: Open Source Deduplication for Linux

Just noticed this on the Slashdot Firehose, may or may not hit front 
page, but sounds cool enough to check out:
Opendedup: Open Source Deduplication for Linux
Submitted by tazzbit on Thursday March 25, @11:28PM

tazzbit writes "The storage vendors have been crowing about data 
deduplication technology for some time now, but a new open source 
project, Opendedup, brings it to Linux and its hypervisors — KVM, Xen 
and VMware. The new deduplication-based file system called SDFS (GPL v2) 
is scalable to eight petabytes of capacity with 256 storage engines, 
which can each store up to 32TB of deduplicated data. Each volume can be 
up to 8 exabytes and the number of files is limited by underlying file 
system. Opendedup runs in user space making it platform independent, 
easier to scale and cluster and can integrate with other user space 
services like Amazon S3."

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
