[1]  Effective capacity assumes HA, RAID, and metadata overhead, GB-to-GiB conversion, and includes the benefit of data reduction with always-on inline deduplication, compression, and pattern removal. Average data reduction is calculated at 5-to-1 and does not include thin provisioning. Pure excludes thin provisioning from the data reduction calculation as it unrealistically doubles the claimed data reduction.
