As data volume grows, finding ways to slow the growth velocity becomes more and more important. We want to do everything possible to maximize the efficiency of our hardware before we spend the money on more storage, so one way to do that is with compression. These slides discuss compression theory and compression options in MySQL, ending with some benchmark data that compares column-level compression in InnoDB with other available compression technologies.
