When Rowstore Compression Beats Columnstore

Joe Obbish looks at scenarios where page-level compression on rowstore tables can beat columnstore compression in terms of resultant table size: It’s certainly more difficult to come up with a demo that works without string columns, but consider how the page compression algorithm works. Data can be compressed on page basis, which includes both multiple rows […]
