Storing Data Efficiently

Using Multi-Value Compression

Multi‑value compression is one of several techniques available for storing data efficiently. Some of the other most commonly used methods are listed below this topic.

Before using multi-value compression as a technique for storing data efficiently, it is useful to understand how these techniques provide superior alternatives to algorithmic compression in some circumstances. See SQL External Routine Programming for general information about how to code algorithmic compression UDFs.
