Real-time Compression “Meets Minimum”

IBM's Ed Walsh, Director of Storage Efficiency sits down with Steve Duplessie, Founder of ESG to talk about how IBM Real-time Compression sets the bar for doing storage optimization in NAS. At the end of the day, if you can do compression in real time, without sacrificing performance and the transparency of the implementation, then why wouldn't you - given the savings you can get over traditional compression.

We all know compression is not new and it is coming as a standard feature in a number of storage systems. The issue is, each of these technologies has a significant impact on performance - both primary storage performance as well as the performance on all of the back end operations such as backups, replication etc...

IBM's Real-time Compression doesn't have any of these limitations - listen to Ed to hear more.
