IBM guarantees storage savings of at least 50 percent with Real-time Compression
Today, thousands of customers enjoy the extraordinary storage efficiency features of the IBM Storwize V7000. And now that efficiency comes with a guarantee. That’s right, IBM now guarantees you a savings rate of at least 50 percent when deploying IBM Real-time Compression. Just turn on Real-time Compression on your new Storwize V7000 and in the unlikely event you don’t get 50 percent or greater compression savings, IBM will provide, at no cost, the hardware and authorisations to match the shortfall. That’s a deal you can’t refuse!
Unlike other compression implementations, Real-time Compression is specifically designed to compress active primary workloads such as Oracle RDBMS, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server and VMware. IBM is so confident that it is willing to guarantee storage savings for Storwize V7000 customers.
