First of all thank you for taking the time to look at my question.
I will be ingesting the following syslog data and need to do some calculation with the compression ratio and I have the following data:
I need to daily ingest 250GB
Retention needed: 90 days
I calculated 250GB x 90 days or retention = 22.5TB of Storage
BUT! i wasnt considering Compression, after i checked my compression ratio is 50%
Then my question to you will be.
when speaking about 50% of compression ratio, then it means i will be only storing half of the ingested? meaning 125GB out of 250GB?
Meaning my required storage then will be 11.5TB for 90 days?
Please let me know if this is clear, and if i am doing the right approach.
