Windows DFS, Nimble and de-duplication

Question asked by Adam Newton on Jan 18, 2016

I was wondering if I created to Windows servers on  a Nimble data store and set up distributed file services (DFS) on both services, does Nimble deduplicate the shares?

 

E.g if i have FILESERVER1 with a shared folder with 1TB of files on it, and I then setup FILESERVER2 with DFS so that also has 1TB of files on it, does Nimble de-duplicate this so that only 1TB of storage is taken up rather than 2TB?

 

Does anyone have any real-world experience of this?

 

Thanks
