Oracle provee un caracteristica a partir de la version 8i, que puede proporcionar ahorro en uso de storage y disminucion de IO. ¿Has escuchado hablar de la "compresion de indices"? Bueno, en este articulo abordaremos una descripcion de esta caracteristica, resultados practicos, recomendaciones y metodologia de implementacion.
