When I first heard about data compression back when it was introduced with SQL Server 2008, I thought that it would be a performance killer. But did you know that data compression can actually improve performance? I've wanted to recommend it many of my customers over the years but often couldn't because they were running Standard Edition. Starting with SQL Server 2016 SP1, data compression is available in all editions. Now any size shop and budget can take advantage of this great feature.
