Overview:

Storage vendors advertise a variety of optimization technologies designed to slow down the consumption of storage.


But every optimization puts some overhead on the system, in terms of either performance or efficiency. Historically, the worst offender in this mix has been compression because of its inherent compute-intensive post-process nature. This often leads businesses to deploy thin provisioning and/or deduplication, but leave compression out of the mix when it comes to active primary storage.


IBM just announced that they have added Real-time Compression to the block-only Storwize V7000 storage system. RTC is a cutting-edge technology that allows you to store significantly more data without impacting storage operations or having to buy more hardware. Check out this report by the Clipper Group to learn:
