Oracle Watch : IBM's Venom Compression Technology Strikes at EMC and Oracle

Oracle Watch : IBM's Venom Compression Technology Strikes at EMC and Oracle "IBM has unveiled its Venom data storage compression technology for DB2 Viper. IBM gave me a sneak peek at this impressive stuff a few weeks back, but I didn’t know the final, nicely poisonous name until now.
When I first wrote about the technology I posed it as a storage battle between IBM and Microsoft, but in actuality it's bigger than that. IBM says that Venom, which reduces storage hardware and usage by up to 70 percent, is really targeted at the 30,000 Oracle customers who use EMC storage and want a new, cheaper alternative to buying more EMC hardware."
