13.7.3.1. Overview of Table Compression

Because processors and cache memories have increased in speed more than disk storage devices, many workloads are I/O-bound. Data compression enables smaller database size, reduced I/O, and improved throughput, at the small cost of increased CPU utilization. Compression is especially valuable for read-intensive applications, on systems with enough RAM to keep frequently-used data in memory.
