Disk storage systems can often be the most expensive components of a database solution. For large warehouses or databases with huge volumes of data, the cost of the storage subsystem can easily exceed the combined cost of the hardware server and the data server software. Therefore even a small reduction in the storage subsystem can result in substantial cost savings for the entire database solution. Data row compression in DB2 9 is a remarkable new feature that can reduce storage requirements, improve I/O efficiency, and result in savings of up to 80%.
Join Sal Vella, VP of DB2 Development, Bill Minor, DB2 Development Manager, and Chris Eaton, DB2 Product Manager, to take you through a deep dive into DB2 9's compression technology and its impact for your business.
