RAM compression software or hardware for VMware ESXi or MS Hyper-V
Posted on 2015-01-09
Anyone remember software (like Quarterdeck MagnaRAM '97) or some old hardware memory compression solutions? Yep, old days, almost 20 years ago... when we have 1-8MB of ram in our PC.... and not so much more in mainframes...:P
I'm interested in that kind of software or hardware are available today, compression of VM's memory can be really interesting if done quick and because VM's memory are quite good compressable (up to 33% of original size).
Sure that software (or hardware) should compress only non active memory, so should be quite integrated with VMware ESXi or MS Hyper-V but it still looking possible and reasonable for me.
Any good suggestions are welcome :)
