Real-time data compression takes storage efficiency to a new level

IBM Real-time Compression Appliances can transparently compress primary NAS data, so clients can keep up to 5 times more data online and gain additional efficiencies throughout the data lifecycle. By shrinking primary data, all subsequent copies of that data, such as backups, archives, snapshots, and replicas are also compressed. Real-time Compression is the newest advancement in storage efficiency. IBM Real-time Compression Appliances are the only storage compression solutions that can shrink primary, online data in real time, without performance degradation. This can significantly lower storage Capital and Operating expenses by reducing the amount of data that is stored, powered and cooled.

Whether storage growth challenges are with files, databases, or mixed workloads, IBM has a compression solution that can quickly and easily help improve storage efficiency.

Patented technology

IBM Real-time Compression Appliance includes patented technology that offers efficiency and optimization for your data storage environment. It compresses data when it is first stored so you send less physical data to storage systems, without negatively impacting performance.
Transparent to your business applications and IT processes, it works with any data type that isn’t already compressed–even complementing your deduplication, virtualization and high availability solutions–to enable a new level of storage efficiency and data protection.
IBM Real-time Compression Appliance benefits

IBM Real-time Compression Appliance solutions enable four key benefits:

    Real-time efficient operation: Supports the performance and accessibility requirements of business-critical applications because data is compressed up to 80% in real time, without performance degradation.
    Transparency: 100% transparent to systems, storage, and applications. Provides compatibility with downstream processes such as backups, snapshots, cloning, mirroring and archiving. And it complements deduplicated environments.
    Non-disruptive: Requires no changes to applications, servers or storage systems. All IT processes remain the same.
    Less Cost, Greener: Cost reduction benefits carry throughout the storage lifecycle: less storage to power, cool, and manage means less cost and a greener data center.
