Good post by Jesse St.Laurent (thank you)
In a previous post, we referenced the importance of delivering data efficiency as a core part of the solution and not as a bolt on. The first data efficiency technology we will review is compression. There are two types of compression: inline and post-processing. This post will review both types. I have attempted to create formulas to help clarify the differences and make it simpler to compare compression options, as well as other data efficiency technologies. Let’s set the formulas aside for a moment and come back to them later with a discussion about how they impact hyperconverged infrastructure.
