I have been working on a 10 TB project. In mid course, it went down to 3
TB just by using a java compress function as an interface to store
in/serve out the CLOBS, whose algorithm is quite similar to gzip
algorithm to compress the CLOBS. It made a huge save in SAN costing.
Though I am quite ignorant of the 25k java functions standard now in
10g, I wonder if there is not a java builtin version of gzip into latest
revisions of 10g. 

Someone can confirm?
