IBM Real-time Compression

Optimise storage capacity with IBM Real-time Compression technology

IBM Real-time Compression™ takes storage efficiency to a new level

Available for both block and file-based storage arrays, this state of the art storage efficiency technology is designed to improve efficiency by compressing data as much as 80 percent, enabling you to store up to five times as much data in the same physical disk space – with no performance degradation.

Unlike other approaches to compression, IBM Real-time Compression is designed to be used with active primary data such as production databases and e-mail applications. IBM Real-time Compression reduces acquisition costs, power and cooling costs and rack space throughout the life of the system.
