Bank of America Reduces Storage Footprint 50%

A few weeks ago I spoke with Satish Zalavadia, Senior DBA at Bank of America. Listen as he describes how Oracle Advanced Compression reduced their storage footprint by 50%. This huge reduction in storage utilization meant that no additional storage was needed to accommodate their data growth for one year even as their clients introduced more applications running against the database. In addition, they saw an 80% improvement of query performance as a result of storing LOB data in Secure Files.
