DSM 7.0.1 now supports btrfs data deduplication

I'm sure that is to sell those silly overpriced branded SSDs and nothing else.  Even if Syno tests for a device model or serial range, this should be defeatable much like the NVMe patch approach.  Please consider a platform like this, with full RAIDF1 and decent CPU support.

No way I'll be upgrading to the specified models - but deduplication of my btrfs volume (8x16TB SHR2) is something I've been looking for for years.  Just need to upgrade to 7.0.1 and resolve the dedupe implementation, I guess!

You can compile deduplication program for btrfs 

Thanks @Aigor, I've read that article. 

Main priority at present is upgrading my xPenology based platform (Kaby Lake, Xeon E31240v6, 32GB ECC, SAS controller, to DSM7. I'm getting old and not as agile (physically & mentally), to deal with multiple issues concurrently.
