Abstract: With the introduction of 11.6.x code, IBM XIV Storage System Gen3 now provides Real-time Compression to help Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 cloud environments greatly reduce physical storage requirements and substantially lower business critical file share and application service costs while maintaining enterprise-class performance, data availability and efficiency. To demonstrate, IBM Real-time Compression implementation guidelines, examples, and XIV model 214 and 314 performance comparisons are revealed throughout this paper to help cloud administrators optimize their IBM XIV data compression experience.
