My customer is thinking of using dedupe in its production environment.
I hear this is becoming more popular, instead of just using it in the DR/backup environment.
Are there any customers who have successfully done this that I can use as a reference?

if you go our to our public website we have a number of published customer stories. Virginia Credit Union is a good one. We have thousands of customers using it very successfully in production deployments.

Hi Neil, in addition to the other comments - I am trying to keep the dedupe page in netapp.com up-to-date with the latest published customer references. Here is the link http://www.netapp.com/us/products/platform-os/dedupe.html - you'll see 3 current case studies and I am about to add about 5 more. BTW if any of you dedupe users out there would like NetApp to produce and promote your company's use of deduplication, send me a note and we'll get you in the queue.
