IBM Real-time Compression transparently compresses primary network-attached storage (NAS) data. So you can keep up to 5 times more data online. By shrinking primary data, all subsequent copies of that data, such as backups, archives, snapshots, and replicas are also compressed.
IBM Real-time Compression is the only storage compression solution that can shrink primary, online data in real-time, without performance degradation. This can significantly lower storage capital and operating expenses by reducing the amount of data that is stored, powered and cooled.
Real-time Compression includes patented technology that compresses data when it is first stored. So you send less physical data to storage systems, without negatively impacting performance. Transparent to your business applications and IT processes, it works with any data type that isn't already compressed.
IBM Real-time Compression is built on three principal technologies
