What if you could estimate the compression ratio in your database environment to see how much Oracle Advanced Compression can reduce your storage footprint before you consider adding more storage?
If the biggest challenge facing your organization is managing data growth cost effectively, you'll need a better strategy for managing your database storage environment that doesn't involve throwing more storage hardware or administration at the problem.
With Compression Advisor, a FREE database tool from Oracle, you can
use your real data to estimate the compression results you could realize when you deploy Oracle Advanced Compression Option in your database environment.
Find instructions for using Compression Advisor when you watch this quick overview about Oracle Advanced Compression. The Compression Advisor Package DBMS_COMPRESSION is included with Oracle Database 12c.
In many organizations today, the amount of additional storage hardware purchased each year in response to data growth shows no sign of slowing down. Regulatory requirements have changed how and why organizations are required to store more information for longer periods of time. Simply adding more storage isn't a cost effective approach against real world budget restrictions or when its impact on user response times and application performance takes a nose dive.
Nearly 40% of the respondents from a recent IOUG survey indicate that reducing costs was their primary reason behind implementing a tiered storage approach in their Oracle Database environment. But even with the right storage and compression capabilities, deciding which data should reside where and when to migrate data from one storage tier to another remains a real world challenge.
Forward-looking IT organizations are adopting advanced strategies for managing data growth using innovative database technologies that automate compression and storage tiering while improving database performance.
Oracle Database 12c provides new features and options that optimize database storage and work together to help you implement an Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) solution in order to manage data growth cost effectively and comply with new regulatory requirements for data retention and protection.
