Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint

Main Features
With Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint, all MS Office files like DOCX, PPTX and XLSX files and JPG files uploaded to your SharePoint servers are automatically optimized (i.e. made on average 50% smaller) before to be stored into your SharePoint server databases.
Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint includes the following file optimization features:
Running on your SharePoint Servers, Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint optimizes the files being uploaded by the users transparently and automatically. SharePoint users have nothing special to do; they upload their files to SharePoint as usual (using their web browser, Windows Explorer, OneDrive, WebDav folders...).
Reduce SharePoint disk space usage
Files consume most of the SharePoint disk space. Reducing by 50% on average the size of all MS Office files and JPG files uploaded to your SharePoint servers drastically reduces SharePoint disk space consumption.
Reduce the growth rate of your SharePoint databases
Reducing by 50% on average the size of all MS Office files and JPG files being stored in your SharePoint databases as a huge impact on their growth rate.
Improve the performance of your SharePoint servers
Smaller SQL databases helps your SharePoint servers performing faster.
Uploaded files made smaller by Z-OptimiZr Real-Time are inserted faster in the SharePoint server databases.
The files to be served being smaller, they are extracted faster from the SharePoint server databases and downloaded faster by the users.
For a given file made 2 times smaller by Z-OptimiZr Real Time, SharePoint server will consume 2 times less resources (Disk space, CPU, disk IO, network, processing time…) and this during the complete life cycle of this file.
Accelerate the download of files stored in SharePoint libraries
Smaller files are accessed and downloaded faster.
Reduce SharePoint network usage
Downloading smaller files consumes less network bandwidth.

Z-OptimiZr Real Time for SharePoint is a member of the Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint software suite for SharePoint storage optimization and performance improvements.

What is Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint?

The Z-OptimiZr Real-Time Optimization Engine:

The Z-OptimiZr Real-Time optimization engine is provided under the form of a SharePoint Feature in a standard WPS setup package coming with its automatic setup program.
Installing the Z-OptimiZr Real-Time optimization engine is very easy, all you have to do is to run the setup program:

This WPS package is deployed globally (The Deployment Server Type is "Front-End Web Server"). The atomic scope of activation of this SharePoint Feature is the Site Collection.
Activating the Z-OptimiZr Real-Time SharePoint Feature for a given Site Collection means that the files uploaded to this Site Collection can benefit of the Z-OptimiZr Real Time optimization features.

As for any SharePoint Feature, SharePoint admins can activate the Z-OptimiZr Real-Time SharePoint Feature for as many Site Collections as needed using the SharePoint Central Admin:

Utilities are provided to facilitate the activation of the Z-OptimiZr Feature on large numbers of Site Collections.

Once deployed, the Z-OptimiZr Real-Time Optimization engine WSP package (as well as the Z-OptimiZr Real-Time Admin site WSP package) are both listed in the SharePoint Central Admin Solution Management Panel.

The Z-OptimiZr Real-Time Administration Web Site:

Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint comes with an administration application provided under the form of a fully integrated SharePoint web site.
It is provided in a standard WSP package installed by an automatic setup program:

The Z-OptimiZr Real-Time admin web site setup program

The Z-OptimiZr Admin web site enables to define different parameter sets (profiles) that can be applied to given SharePoint Site Collections, sites or libraries; for instance, for some given image file libraries the JPG files can be optimized and resized to 1920 x 1080 pixels, while for some other libraries they are optimized without being resized.

Although the Z-OptimiZr Real-Time optimization engine, being provided under the form of a SharePoint feature, is activated / deactivated on a per site collection basis, the Z-OptimiZr Admin web site enables to activate / deactivate the the Z-OptimiZr Real-Time optimization features (Native XML file optimization, Native image file optimization) individually, and if needed, only for some sites or libraries and only for given file types.

What kind of results is Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint able to deliver?

With Microsoft Office files:

MS Office files without Z-OptimiZr Real Time

These files have been uploaded to a SharePoint Document Library for which Z-OptimiZr Real Time was not active:

MS Office files in a SharePoint Document Library for which Z-OptimiZr Real-Time is not active

MS Office files with Z-OptimiZr Real-Time

The same Microsoft Office files uploaded after Z-OptimiZr Real-Time has been made active on this library:

66% savings!

With Picture files
optimization only, no resizing:

Picture files with Z-OptimiZr Real-Time

The same picture files uploaded after Z-OptimiZr Real-Time has been made active on this SharePoint Document Library:

In the above test, the image files were optimized without being resized. Thus the optimized pictures have the same width and height in pixels as the original pictures. And as you will see if you have a look at these files, their rendering quality is fully preserved.

With Picture files
Optimization + resizing to 1920 x 1080:

Picture files in a SharePoint Document Library for which Z-OptimiZr Real-Time is not active

Picture files with Z-OptimiZr Real-Time

The same picture files uploaded after Z-OptimiZr Real-Time has been made active on this SharePoint Document Library:

Picture files in a SharePoint Document Library for which Z-OptimiZr Real-Time is active

95% savings!

In the above test, the pictures were optimized and resized smaller to match a HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) frame. Although in this case, the optimized pictures have smaller dimensions than the original pictures, this makes no visual difference to the users displaying these picture on HD screens. The reason is that when displaying pictures larger than the surface of their displays, the Windows photo viewer resizes these pictures automatically to display them in full on the display surface.

Test for yourself!

With file optimization and compression, the volume reduction results always depend on the content of the files.
Thus the above results have to be taken as examples of what Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint, and our other optimization software as well, are able to achieve in terms of native MS Office and picture file optimization.

It is very easy for you to evaluate Z-OptimiZr Real-Time for SharePoint with your own files. All you have to do is to download an evaluation copy, install it (in a few minutes, following the step-by-step instructions of the installation guide) and start using it.

You can also download an evaluation copy of Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Databases, our other optimization software for SharePoint servers.

The purpose of Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Databases is to optimize the files already stored in SharePoint libraries. You can run it in test mode (in test mode, it will not modify your existing files) against any SharePoint document or image libraries of your choice. It will tell you the exact amount of disk space it is able to retrieve on the selected libraries and will generate the corresponding csv log files containing all the details for each optimized file.
