Flash-enabled compression – learn how compressed databases can run even faster than uncompressed

New Features
2 April 2:20PM - 3:10PM @ Ballroom H

50 minutes conference
Learn how the upcoming convergence of volatile and non-volatile memory infrastructure is creating software interfaces that dramatically improve the performance and reliability of applications. This session will focus on compression improvements in innodb/XtraDB optimized for flash using these native flash interfaces. Get the capacity benefits of compression, without incurring the performance overhead and complexity of packing and re-packing the compressed blocks into one-size-fits-all blocks. Instead, rely on underlying thin provisioning to allocate only what is used and provide efficient garbage collection of unused blocks.
