This is a non-SAN specific question, yet fully applicable to SAN environment as well:
Can we expect (when?) aggregate-level de-duplication?
Current volume-level de-dupe is great anyway, yet taking this one step further would be nice!

These are all good questions, and topics regularly being discussed inside NetApp these days. Scalability of deduplication and continual performance improvements are of course both key objectives for our development team. While we can't disclose specific roadmap items on an open forum like this community, NDA roadmap presentations are available to NetApp customers and prospects via your NetApp account team.
