Demystify Data Compression

Abstract

SQL Server 2016 SP1 and newer makes data compression available in all editions. Data compression can reduce storage costs, and provide a performance boost—and now compression is available without the added cost of Enterprise Edition. Whether you are a developer or a DBA, it’s important to know how to use compression to save money and improve speed.

Come learn about how data compression actually works, the differences between ROW and PAGE compression, and learn how to pick the best compression level for your data. This session will cover the details of the compression algorithms, and the costs and benefits associated with each type of compression.

By the end of this session, you’ll have a better idea of how the different compression algorithms work, when compression is the right solution, as well as what type of compression to use.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
