Please compress data in place for more efficient use of storage.
For example, I recently exported the entire dataset from a collection and gathered the following stats:
DocumentDB Data Storage: 627 MiB (including hidden fields and other overhead I assume, but not Indexes)
Exported JSON: 461.72 MiB
Compressed JSON: 47MiB
So potentially a 10x saving in data storage size.111 votes
We’re evaluating more compressed storage formats. Meanwhile, please consider using a client-side compression library for encoding fields/JSON fragments that are not used for querying.
