This storage startup dedupes what to do what? How?

Yep; Merkle trees popped into my head as well.

It sounds like a hierarchical type of dictionary combined with hash trees for sync; really neat idea, but not sure how it's dedupe in the dedupe sense as opposed to some sort of inline compression - or a fancy type of RLE.

Might be me just semantically nitpicking.
