IBM Real Time Compression with IBM XIV Storage System Model 314
Disk storage

Redpaper, published 16 Feb 2016, last updated 22 Feb 2017

IBM® Real-time Compression™ is fully integrated in the IBM XIV® Storage System Gen3. Real-time Compression provides the possibility to store 2 - 5 times more data per XIV system, without additional hardware. This technology also expands the storage-replication-related bandwidth, and can significantly decrease the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Using compression for replication and for volume migration with IBM Hyper-Scale Mobility is faster and requires less bandwidth for the interlink connections between the XIV storage systems, because the data that is transferred through these links is ...
