New SQL Storage Compress 5.0 from Red Gate
Faster, more economical SQL Server storage relief
CAMBRIDGE, UK, September 8, 2010 – Red Gate has launched SQL Storage Compress 5.0 (formerly HyperBac Online), a major release that reduces the storage footprint of live SQL Server databases, improves I/O performance, and works across all SQL Server and operating system versions.
“SQL Storage Compress 5.0 is the simplest, most economical option to reduce SQL Server storage costs,” says Jeffrey Aven, head of the product’s development team. “It’s ideal for anybody who wants instant storage space relief, reduced read/write I/O, and greater transaction throughput.”
Functionality and improvements in SQL Storage Compress 5.0 include:
- Silent data compression – SQL Storage Compress integrates seamlessly with SQL Server to compress databases by up to 90 percent.
- Ability to run compressed, live databases from newly created or restored databases, including from full, differential and transaction log backups created with native SQL Server, SQL HyperBac, SQL Backup Pro, and other third-party backup products.
- New engine performance improvements of up to 25 percent.
- New support documentation from Red Gate’s acclaimed team.
Easy to implement
Qian Ye, a senior database administrator for the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH), likes the fact that SQL Storage Compress is implemented on an entire database, datafile or filegroup, removing the need for developers to define compression on an object-by-object basis.
“It’s very easy to use and self-maintained,” says Qian. “Everything is done at the OS level, which makes it very easy to implement.”
