Dedupe on ReFS and Hyper-V non-VDI scenarioes...
Please please please add support for Dedupe on ReFS volumes! If you want us to start using the new filesystem then you really should implement Dedupe as well. Also support for Dedupe on other than VDI loads would really be nice. It works very well, so why not??
I agree that this is a must have - after running dedup on all of my VM hosts I'm like a meth addict - I really really want to go to ReFS, but I just can't let go of dedup!

Thank you for the feedback. We are working on Dedup for ReFS, but do not yet have a committed launch date. Please stay tuned!
With Windows Server 2016, Dedup for General Purpose Hyper-V hosts is a supported workload. Please be advise that this is a more advanced scenario, and requires extra monitoring and thought when configuring. Please follow the guidance here for more information: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-docs/storage/data-deduplication/install-enable#enable-dedup-candidate-workloads
Thank you so much for your feedback!
