Planning or Performing an Advanced Compression Proof of Concept? Get this Oracle White Paper.

Gregg Christman
Product Manager

Are you already a user of Advanced Compression, or are you planning (or currently performing) a proof-of-concept (PoC) with Advanced Compression? If so, then I thought it would be useful to point out an Oracle Advanced Compression white paper that I believe will be useful no matter if you are a current user, or are planning to perform Advanced Compression proof-of-concept testing.

Some of the topics discussed in the PoC white paper, that I believe are useful to know as a user of Advanced Compression, as well as when preparing for an Advanced Compression PoC, includes:

  • Enabling Advanced Row Compression for existing tables
  • When Advanced Row Compression occurs
  • Direct-path versus conventional-path bulk loads
  • Index Key Compression and Advanced Index Compression
  • Compression best practices and insights
  • Using the free Compression Advisor tool
  • What does the typical compression PoC look like?
  • What to consider before PoC testing begins
  • Example of a compression PoC as a multi-step process

Please note that the white paper is not intended to be a step-by-step guide to performing a compression PoC. Instead, the document provides best practices learned from many customer PoC’s and provides insights (about Advanced Compression) to help plan your compression PoC, as well as help you understand the results of your PoC.

The Oracle white paper is available for download, on Oracle.com, at the link below.
