- ONTAP 9
- Storage Efficiency
- Adaptive compression combines fewer blocks of data into a compression group (8K).
- The compression group is then compressed and stored as a single block.
- When a user requests data from this compression group, less time is taken to decompress and provide that data to the user, thereby improving the read performance.
- In general, adaptive compression is better suited for random workloads.
- Adaptive compression provides relatively fewer savings as compared to secondary compression, but with better performance.
