HYDRAstor decouples performance nodes (called Accelerator Nodes) from capacity nodes (called Storage Nodes) creating two separate layers that act independently of one another and possess their own levels of intelligence.
Data recovery is where the rubber meets the road. However I am not sure if deduplication vendors always practice what they preach because vendors almost
