Oracle's Hybrid Columnar Compression: All of the Benefits of Columnar Storage Without the Performance Shortfalls
sponsored by Oracle Corporation UK Ltd

Traditionally, data has been organized within a database block in a row format, where all column data for a particular row is stored sequentially within a single database block.

But having data from columns with different data types stored close together can limit the storage savings achievable with compression technology.

This white paper explores Oracle's Hybrid Columnar Compression, a new method for organizing data within a database block. This technology utilizes a combination of both row and columnar methods for storing data, resulting in a hybrid approach that achieves the compression benefits of columnar storage while avoiding the performance shortfalls of a pure columnar format and can save 10x to 15x on your storage space.
