Subject Compression
Author Thomas Steinmaurer

I don't know if this has been disccused in the past, but is there
anything on the plan for supporting compression at page/table/record-level?

Having less stuff on disk means there is less to read from disk and
ideally, not uncompressed but compressed pages are in the cache. This
also means that more data fits into memory/cache ...

Well, we are currently investigating various compression options for an
Oracle installation and a whitepaper discusses that CPU overhead for
compression/decompression is minimal etc ...

Comments, ideas ...?
