Powerstore 500T "Data Reduction"


Could you help me with the following question?

I have a powerstore 500t storage, which supports a SAP Hana environment virtualized on 3 ESX hosts, the month of April the storage had used 35TB and the month of May the team happened to have used 14TB, therefore the space used was reduced by 21TB, as I see is characteristic of "Data Reduction" which has a ratio 2.5:1, my question is whether this compression of data can affect or will affect in the future the performance of the vm currently used by SAP.

If so, is it possible to disable this option or is it a storage option to free up space and does not affect the systems that use the storage.

It is not possible to disable the DataReduction feature. Also this feature is online and not a post process one.  So the performance you see today is the performance you will get next week. So dont worry :)

Thanks for your question.

It won’t affect performance and is not something you can disable. This whitepaper goes into more detail about how it works.



Let us know if you have any additional questions.
