Deduplication is not the same as Copy-on-write

Wikipedia:Deduplication (or Wikipedia:Data deduplication) isn't the same as Wikipedia:Copy-on-write. Since the current article about deduplication essentially is only about that, I created Copy-on-write as a redirect to Deduplication for now. In the future, maybe there should be a real Copy-on-write article (incorporating COW in RAM or in databases as well as on filesystems etc.), and moving the current Deduplication to [[Copy-on-write/Deduplication]] page.

When we get more content on this topic it makes sense to me to divide them into separate pages, but this works for the present. Thank you! --Maffblaster (talk) 01:00, 16 July 2023 (UTC)
