IDC: Storwize V7000 with Real-time Compression expands IBM's IT Optimization lead and provides an easy upgrade path
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 has often led businesses to deploy thin provisioning and/or deduplication, but leave compression out of the mix when it comes to active primary storage.
This white paper explores how next-gen, real-time compression is changing the game by offering a robust, efficient, and cost-effective optimization solution. Read now to find out how you can:
- Save 50% or more in the amount of physical storage space required
- Reduce overall storage growth by nearly 30%
- Cut your costs per gigabyte for primary storage configurations by 30–40% without compromising any capacity or performance
- And more
