MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -Â April 19, 2010 – Storwize, the leader in online storage optimization solutions through real-time data compression, today announced the availability of a new white paper that details the companyâ€™s unique Random Access Compression Engineâ„¢ (RACE) architecture. RACE is the underlying technology inside Storwize STN appliances that enables real-time data compression without performance degradation.
The white paper outlines the differences between traditional/post-process storage compression and Storwizeâ€™s real-time, random access method. Both approaches apply the industry-standard Lempel-Ziv (LZ) compression algorithm; however, Storwize has 35 patents or patents pending on how to make LZ compression real-time and random access, meaning that files are compressed as they are written to a network-attached storage (NAS) device without performance degradation. RACE is deterministic, ensuring consistency in its compression ratios and lossless ensuring data integrity.
Storwize is the only company that offers real-time, random access data compression of primary storage. Through the implementation of RACE, Storwize appliances can reduce storage utilization between 50 – 90 percent and dramatically reduce the overall cost of storage. Storwize helps slow the growth of storage, reducing the amount of storage to be managed, powered, and cooled.
â€œRACE distinguishes us in the data compression market,â€ states Steve Kenniston, VP of Technology Strategy. â€œIt allows us to help customers drive down storage costs while providing them with an accelerated ROI on enterprise applications without changing their storage, network, or applications.â€
