Time: 10:30–11:15

Block cloning for OpenZFS enables referencing a single data block multiple times. This can also be described as on-demand or manual deduplication. Block cloning can offer significant space savings and performance improvements while avoiding the drawbacks of existing deduplication. The presentation will cover the design, challenges, use cases, and current status of the project.
