Compression in DB2 Viper

Cover Image

With its new compression feature, the DB2 Viper allows databases to be compressed by 45% on average -- reducing storage costs and improving performance in many cases. Backup images are now half the size, which enables backup/restore operations to finish in almost half the time and consume half the space.


This white paper introduces the new technologies found in DB2 Viper and offers a detailed description of DB2 Viper compression logistics as well as a performance comparison of the compression capabilities found in Microsoft SQL and Oracle 10g. Learn how DB2 Viper compression works to save between 50% and 80% disk space on some of your largest tables and brings a new level of cost control to your IT infrastructure.
