In addition to the maximum supported volume sizes, there is also a maximum shared data limit for
deduplication. Recall that deduplication achieves savings by keeping a single copy of a block and
replacing all duplicates of that block with pointers to the single block. As a result of deduplication, much of
the logical data will now be stored as pointers to a reduced number of physical blocks written to the
volume. It is very common for a single block to have many pointer references. The logical data that ends
up being stored as pointers is called shared data. The maximum shared data limit per volume for
deduplication is 16TB, regardless of the platform type. Once this limit is reached, any additional new data
written to the volume will not be deduplicated. Writes to the volume will continue to work successfully until
the volume is completely full.
