One of the most requested features for Windows Server 2016 was ReFS with De-Duplication. This feature was released over a year ago, but unfortunately it was only in the Semi-Annual Release which did not include support for Storage Spaces Direct. So, the IT Community has waited patiently and the time has finally come with Windows Server 2019 LTSC. This release has added full support for ReFS De-Duplication into Windows Server 2019. What does this mean for you?? How about 80+ % space savings on your VM's, Backups, ISO repositories, all running on Cluster Shared Volumes with Storage Spaces Direct.

In this Session, Dave will show you how to Setup, Configure and test De-Duplication with ReFS based on his years of knowledge working with Microsoft Storage.
