Windows 2012 RS Data Deduplication WITH DFS


I'm familiar with both DFS and Windows 2012 Data Deduplication.

Wondering how they work together?  Although DFS runs real-time and W2012 Deduplication runs on a schedule, so i'm wondering how DFS works with data duplication?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

They work together surprisingly well actually as they appear to pretty much ignore each other.
When DFS assesses and transfers a file that has been deduped, it is just served up the file without being aware it has been stubbed.

the only downside I'm seeing is that DFS acts separately to the dedupe faciltity and doesn't make use of the chuck store that dedupe uses. DFS assesses the file and arranges replication of the file as normal.
