Storage Switzerland: Smarter Primary Storage Through Real-time Compression

White Paper Published By: IBM
Published:  Nov 08, 2012
Type:  White Paper
Length:  7 pages

It is no great revelation to learn that primary storage continues to grow at an alarming rate. What may not be immediately obvious is the ripple effect of that growth and that the data supporting every process throughout the storage life cycle is also increasing in size. Where this is most typically seen is in increased backup storage consumption. What's often missed is the impact of primary storage growth on data management practices like data protection.

This report discusses how IBM Real-time Compression reduces immediate storage growth and has a long-term impact on increasing storage efficiency and reducing costs.
