The new compression features built into the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server 2008 should use less disk space and, perhaps even more important, speed up your system because of reduced disk IO.
In this session we will :
Take a look behind the scenes to see how it works.
Investigate what commands / tools we can use to set it up and maintain it.
Look into some examples of my own day to day experience that I collected so far.
I aim to give an overview of both data compression and backup compression AND some Lessons Learned.
