Additional Information

IBM's z Enterprise Data Compression (zEDC) has many benefits: it is relatively straightforward and inexpensive to implement, it can be leveraged by numerous widely used access methods and products, it reduces disk storage requirements and I/O elapsed times by delivering very good compression ratios, and the CPU cost is very minimal since almost all the processing is offloaded to the hardware.
