Dedupe CPU

Just wanted to remind folks that dedupe is a very CPU intensive task. So when you have 24 x 2TB or 4TB drives in a shelf, getting the advertised 300 - 600TB of actual data on there will be really tough.

I know some vendors have struggled with this, but not sure of the state of dedup'ing large pools across the board.
