Oracle Advanced Compression and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 helps manage more data in a cost-effective manner. With data volumes, on average, tripling every two years, Oracle Advanced Compression delivers compression rates of 2-4x across all types of data and applications. Storage savings from compression will cascade throughout the data center, reducing network traffic and data backups as well. And by reading fewer blocks off disk, Oracle Advanced Compression also improves query performance.
