Hi!

I question that surfaced during a contact with our IT-department. We are going to have about 1 miljon documents in our Alfresco installation. It is mostly going to be documents that simply are waiting for archiving, but still need to be accessable. The question is if it is possible to apply compression-algoritms to the document storage?

The way our setup look it would be preferable if the compression happed in the webapplication both from the storage point of view, but also to limit the impact of bandwith between the servers. I'd also belive that it would be easier to add webservers to get processingpower than  a database or  a fileserver?

Just a thought

Best regards
Roland
