currently recent databases version comprise features of data compression
for storage optimization such as Oracle Advance Compression or DB2
My question is regarding backup of these databases with compression
enabled when there's already a compression/deduplication hw product for
backup storage saving.
Is it possibile to have not compressed backup file (using RMAN or DB2
equivalent) so that compression and dedupe can be applied from backup
anybody has experience or test such options and can share impacts and
pro/cons of this configuration?
thanks in advance.
