  Description     : set of userspace tools for managing pools of deduplicated 
and/or compressed block storage

VDO (which includes kvdo and vdo) is software that provides inline
block-level deduplication, compression, and thin provisioning
capabilities for primary storage. VDO installs within the Linux device
mapper framework, where it takes ownership of existing physical block
devices and remaps these to new, higher-level block devices with
data-efficiency capabilities.

Note that this requires (currently) out-of-tree kernel modules
(, these could be packaged with dkms or
wait that they hit mainline
