Storage insolvency

Thin or thick, de-dupe or not… the gains from compressing storage can be huge. But just like some people didn’t pay attention to the numbers and got burned in the financial crisis, how far can we push thin provisioning and storage de-duplication?

Is 200% over-subscription reasonable, or can we squeeze 300% …?

When does it go pop, vms freeze, and we have a full blow storage crisis on our hands
