Poor wording on my part. I meant that HCC is something to seriously consider for a copy-on-write file system. Anything that will reduce the number of blocks should be a significant benefit.

Aside from that, I understand that HCC was actively 'not available' from non-Exadata environments until recently. No idea whether that was just traditional licensing (on your honour not to use it), or it was active in the code.
