Storwize is a company that specializes in applying in-line data compression to reduce capacity requirements for primary storage. The company's technology uses high speed compression algorithms that do not negatively impact system performance. A key aspect of the Storwize appliance is that unlike array-specific solutions, Storwize compression can be applied to any file-based storage environment.
In 2010, IBM bought Storwize for a reported $140M. IBM subsequently re-branded Storwize as a midrange disk array and now uses Real Time Compression to describe the original Storwize technology. Wikibon, where appropriate has changed Storwize references to real time compression.
