      I suspect one thing NetApp will be discussing is "deduplication".  Here's how it was discussed in the April 13th issue of Information Week:

      Deduplication systems find and eliminate duplicate data by dividing files into chunks and looking for chunks that have the same data. The major difference is how they chunk data. The simplest method is to use fixed size chunks like disk blocks.


      NetApp's Write Anywhere File Layout, or WAFL, builds files as lists of blocks. WAFL calculates a checksum of each block, and stores it with the data, whether by a schedule or by an event like a disk reaching a utilization threshold. Blocks that have the same checksum are compared to see if they contain the same data. If they do, WAFL deletes one block and modifies the metadata of the file where the block resided. WAFL will be released as a free software upgrade later this year.
