BE can use Puredisk for dedup.  It treats Puredisk as an OST appliance.  See the BE Admin Guide on how to use OST appliance.

You would need to purchase Puredisk.  It is not free.  Why do you want to use Puredisk?  You can buy the dedup option for BE which uses a version of Puredisk which is optimised for BE.  If you buy Puredisk, you would still need to buy the dedup option for BE to use it.

With CASO and the BE dedup option, you can share the one dedup folder with a few media servers.

I would suggest that you look at the BE dedup option closer before exploring Puredisk.

with BE CASO & Dedupelication you can only share your Storage Over Ethernet , I want to use FC for Dedupe Storage Traffic.
