A Comparative Evaluation of Block Storage Compression Technology for Multipurpose Storage Environments
As you probably know, storage vendors are tripping over one another to offer you their products, claiming theirs is the solution to your storage problems.
You need to do your homework and carefully evaluate these technologies to make sure they are truly conducive to your particular IT needs.
Edison Group recently sought to evaluate the practicality of the compression technologies included with leading storage systems for the mid to enterprise market. The Real-time Compression technology included with the IBM Storwize V7000 Storage System is compared with the compression technology included with both the EMC VNX Series and the NetApp Fabric-Attached Storage (FAS) family of filer storage systems. Check out this white paper to learn the results.
