No, it doesn't require advanced compression, but it can take advantage of advanced compression if it is available. SecureFiles is a re-architecting of LOB internal functionality to narrow (Oracle would say eliminate) the performance gap between storage in the filesystem vs. storage in the database. Compression and Encryption are options you can add to SecureFiles (and other parts of the architecture as well) as your needs and finances dictate. Received on Tue Jun 16 2009 - 20:22:30 CDT
