I have been enabling page compression on our entire data warehouse recently, so this was a pretty easy question :-)

I was about to ask this same thing. I have been considering doing this as well. So far I have only added page compression to our archive tables and not to ones being accessed more frequently.

What kind of compression ratio have you obtained?

If the compression brings you over 70% storage gain, than you should compress without any measurements, otherwise you should make some measurements concerning the CPU usage on compressed and uncompressed tables.

Once I did some investigation on compression on a small system. I compressed the entire database (mixed: page and row) and run a tool that was processing data against compressed and uncompressed databases. The processing time was same, and i obtained a storage gain. The avg CPU usage increased but not for much. It's recommended the avg CPU should not be more than 80%. So you can even compress the more frequently accessed tables.

If the reads operations dominate over the writes (e.g. more than 95:5) than you go with compression.

Thank you, I will keep that in mind when I am able to get back to that testing!
