94% Compression???? SQL Server from 1GB to 65 MB

By | June 11, 2019

In this video we go about taking data that is little over 1 GB in size and incrementally reducing its size all the way down to 65MB. This is mostly to highlight that good design can significantly reduce the memory footprint of the data. With tools like PowerbI etc. the push is towards storing the data in memory and what I show in the video matters even more today than a few years back.
