What Is Data Reduction?

Data reduction is an umbrella term for a suite of technologies – including compression, deduplication, and thin provisioning – that serve to reduce the storage capacity required to handle a given data set. Thus, storage vendors will describe their storage offerings both in terms of raw capacity and post-data reduction, effective capacity. Data reduction is a key factor in making all-flash solutions available for a variety of budgets.

Pure Storage provides the industry's most granular and complete data reduction via FlashReduce, which is included with every FlashArray//m purchase. For virtually any application, FlashReduce delivers data reduction savings that bring the cost of all-flash below that of spinning disk – and, via the FlashArray//m10, available even to small- and medium-sized enterprises. On average, Pure Storage delivers a 5:1 data reduction ratio.
