We think you might be interested in this job: In-storage transparent compression is providing enterprises with benefits far beyond what one might expect. Before transparent compression, storage drives acted only as a physical devices to store data.

For this reason, in-storage transparent compression is highly desirable to relieve host CPU/GPU from executing lossless data compression.

Let’s examine how in-storage transparent compression benefits one of the most widely used relational databases: PostgreSQL.

By enabling virtually variable-size block I/O, in-storage transparent compression allows PostgreSQL to drastically reduce the fill factor and therefore improve TPS performance without sacrificing the physical storage cost.
