@IBMbigdata @craigmullins #ibmblu If "metadata" can get "cool" (or at least on everybody's lips), there's hope 4 "compression." Not yet tho
A8: I want the compression algorithm to be smarter than me and it's way smarter with combination of techniques in #ibmblu
A8: #ibmblu One might recognize that speedy compression must be applied to operational data, but not as critical on bulk archival data
A8: #ibmblu There's a need to apply different compression schemes to different types of data, to minimize data footprints & max efficiency
A7: #ibmblu RT @tomlrieger: RAM still expensive & to be able to work on compressed data and have smart cache on columnar is important
A7 - Better use of memory, less I/O, faster utility execution, foundation for other technologies to leverage #ibmblu
#ibmblu compresses data as much as possible, compresses the most commonly occurring data & and then optimally packs it = performance gains
A7 – pack more data into every I/O, page and CPU operation. #ibmblu has it. Competition stops short.
A7: #ibmblu Compression can improve memory/disk usage & query performance in one fell swoop if can operate on still-compressed data.
A6: Why does a DBA need to manage a DW full of secondary tuning objects? Modern DBs (e.g., #ibmblu #PureData) make that unnecessary.
A5: #ibmblu RT @tomlrieger: Phys (machine) & logical (query path) opp's 4 optimization. Compression in #ibmblu makes easier to scale both
A5: Compression alone? No. What CAN and HAS replaced some of the tuning objects is COLUMNAR IN-MEMORY databases a la #ibmblu
A5: #ibmblu RT @Keith_Carlsen: [compression can't replace tuning objects] by itself. Only when part of bigger set of data proc optimizations
A4 - I’ve seen 2x expansion routinely. Aggregate/summary tables take space, but also admin/CPU to maintain. Not needed with #ibmblu
A4 The "extraneous" objects used for tuning can double the size of a database. #ibmblu
Better quality of life for DBAs! RT @enzeevoice #ibmblu - major advtge is admins...can manage the data without it crushing them.
RT @Keith_Carlsen A4 Aggregate/summary tables take space, but also admin/CPU to maintain. Not needed with #ibmblu
@Keith_Carlsen A4 - yes, simplifies the DBA experience to not have to design/manage aggregates #ibmblu
MQTs, indexes and the like bloat load times by 2-3x. There is a lot of work to keep all that overhead current with each new row #ibmblu
A4 Worse yet, those tuning objects require their own maintenance. #ibmblu
A4: #ibmblu Secondary tuning (indexes) can increase data stor requirements considerably. Fortunately #IBM #Netezza #PureData doesnt use em.
A3: #ibmblu Can move the detail data to cheaper cloud bulk storage.
A3: #ibmblu You can do pre-processing analytics on incoming data to find key patterns/trends of interest, so need to keep less detailed data
A3: #ibmblu You can profile incoming data (using IBM Data Explorer) to determine upfront what's worth retaining. Can use dedupe to reduce it
A2: #ibmblu Need for real-time analytics against massive online data sets may also reduce some needs for archiving and purging.
A2: #ibmblu Storage cost reductions may lesse needs for frequent data archiving, purging, compression, and other storage optimizations.
A1: #ibmblu #BigData's focus on advanced analytics has increased the need to do fast indexing query etc of data without decompressing
A1: #ibmblu #BigData's growing varieties of structured & unstructured intensify need for differentiated compression of diverse data types
A1: #ibmblu #BigData's velocity requirements (stream computing etc) has intensified the need for very fast compression/decompression.
A1: #ibmblu #BigData has spurred order-of-magnitude increase in storage requirements. Compression is central pillar o storage optimization
A1: #ibmblu #BigData's massive data volumes require efficient compression to make cost-effective use o storage resources. IT budgets limited

@mjasay Might think o "3 Vs" as "3 Ss" (scale speed scope)(http://ow.ly/o8flH ). Some equ8 "scale" w/"volume." Same concepts, diff words
@mjasay Confusion is endemic to many #bigdata industry discussions when people treat the 3 scale Vs as equiv to non-scale Vs (veracity etc)
Join me today at 1 PM ET for #ibmblu chat on Controlling your Data Footprint! Details: http://ibm.co/19w6A94
@mjasay #bigdata "scale" is about 3 quantifiable dimensions of "more": capacity (volume), speed (velocity), and diversity (variety).
@mjasay Huh? Variety and velocity are two components of scale. Volume is the third.
My tweaked definition of #bigdata: deep business value derived from implementing advanced analytics and trustworthy data at extreme scales.
