Taneja Group have just published a blog, "IBM peppers many storage products with Real-time Compression" that takes a look at Storwize and Real Time Compression since IBM purchased the company to now.
"After IBM purchased the company, we wondered how long it would take the company to realize that if this software could be integrated into the storage device itself and still achieve compression ratios in the 3:1 range, without performance impact, it would instantly give IBM an unfair advantage in the marketplace."
This comes hot on the heels of our storage event Edge where we outlined Smarter Storage. So what is the future of Smarter Storage? Here is a little of what Taneja think.
"And wouldn't it be interesting if IBM found a way to integrate RTC into the N-Series, which is OEM'd from NetApp."
