In-band vs. out-of-band deduplication
It has a little bit different performance impact. The knock on target-based data deduplication is that you aren't really reducing the amount of data you are sending over the network.

You are reducing the amount of data that you store, but there is always going to be that performance hit with target-based deduplication.
