Abstract: This paper demonstrates how the Real-time Compression feature of the IBM Storwize V7000 can be used to reduce the storage capacity required for running an Oracle 11g database. The paper also explains the use of Real-time Compressed volumes with file systems as well as Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM) disk groups for storing the Oracle data files, and the capacity saving it provides.
