This storage startup dedupes what to do what? How?

"a bit by bit comparison if the hash matches, and store the blocks separately if it they are different."

Surely doing that (and the other unmentioned but essential bits) isn't a sign of paranoia, it's a sign that doing otherwise is stupid?

A storage system that returns some largely unexpected data with no relationship to the original except it has the same hash isn't really much of a storage system, in my book. But then maybe I'm a dinosaur. Dinosaurs are extinct. Marketing people and their equivalents on the purchasing side (techno-hipsters?) are still with us.
