Putting the “Squeeze” on Large Tables

Improve Performance and Save Space with Data Compression Your databases are growing faster than your servers. Large tables consume ever-increasing amounts of storage and create difficult challenges managing query response times, backups, recovery, and maintenance. What’s a DBA to do? The data compression feature of SQL Server is one tool DBAs can use to save storage space and improve performance. In this presentation you will learn about the types of data compression, how to determine when compression is the right option, and how to make the magic happen.
