We want to evaluate advanced compression option to compress one of our large EBS table which is over *250 GB* in size. Has anyone tried compressing tables of this size? I would like to know the benchmark timings and if any other pointers …

    We have already used BACIS COMPRESS on several big partitionned tables. The space ratio is 3, but it depends on datas because of the block compression algorithm.
    For update-mostly workloads, Oracle recommends OLTP COMPRESS.

    Hope this could be helpful.

    I use A/C often and with excellent results (current DB size > 200TB).

    The amount of compression you can achieve depends on the data. The best way to find out the answer to your question is by testing in a lab environment.

    Considering using standard compression for the first time. How is this implemented? What is the performance impact of storing and retrieving and once I compress the table can I just restore the DB from export file and get back to original.
