This session will focus on block-level compression (BLC), how it works, what compression rates you can expect, and where it is appropriate to define. Examples of the impact on CPU usage and elapsed time when queries access compressed tables will be shared, and the overhead while performing different database operations on these tables will be explored. Plenty of tips and techniques for successful use of BLC are offered.
