You can run DeDupe on the volume, this will reduce your OS storage. (if you have like VMs in the volume/LUN)

We run DeDupe on a schedule every 24 hours.

ok thanks Andrew.
because we have a strange problem with our exchange. After the move to another location the management tasks are taking much longer time.
To create a mailbox this tales 10 minutes.

I cannot find any problem, when I check CPU, RAM,DISKS,STORAGE or LATENCY.

When creating a new mailbox, which server is in progress ? Mailbox Server or HUB-CAS ?

I would recommend a discussion with VMware and NetApp Support, especially with NetApp to check your Filer configuration.
