Storwize provides online storage optimization through real-time data compression, delivering dramatic cost reduction without performance degradation.
Based on the Storwize Random Access Compression Engine™ (RACE), Storwize STN appliances transparently compress primary storage between 50 - 90 percent without changes in performance, storage, applications, networks or processes.
RACE ensures that Storwize appliances deliver real-time random access, deterministic and lossless data compression, maintaining reliable and consistent performance and data integrity. Storwize helps slow the growth of storage acquisition and related storage life cycle costs, including reducing the amount of storage to be managed, powered and cooled.
