Oracle Advanced Compression

mleal2005

I can't seem to find any recommendations on using Oracle Advanced Compression with AFF storage arrays. Mainly looking for guidance on the configuration of aggregate compaction and volume dedupe and compression settings. Should they all stay enabled, or can OAC be used in conjunction with those technologies.

It's a good question. I see one blog post from oracle, may be worth taking a look.

Good post - I worked with Gregg Christman when I worked at Oracle.

ACO (Advanced Compression Option) is a collection of numerous features.  It might be helpful to know which features are being used and how.
