Z-OptimiZr XML File (DOCX, PPTX, XLSX) Native Optimization
Each of the programs of the Z-OptimiZr Optimization Suite for SharePoint (Z-OptimiZr Real Time, Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Databases and Z-OptimiZr Client for SharePoint) includes the native XML optimization feature for all Microsoft Office 2007 - 2010 - 2013 DOCX, PPTX and XLSX files.
This Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint XML file volume reduction feature applies natively to the DOCX, PPTX and XLSX files (the resulting files remain as native DOCX, PPTX and XLSX files, but made significantly smaller by Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint).
Since the optimized XML files remain as XML files (for instance an optimized PPTX file remains as a PPTX file), the Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint XML optimization feature achieves the maximum possible level of transparency in terms of volume reduction for Microsoft Office XML files.
There is simply no need for any particular software or add-ons other than Microsoft Office to open the optimized XML files.
The example below gives an idea of the power of the Z-OptimiZr native XML optimization feature. This test was performed with Z-OptimiZr Real Time on files being uploaded to a SharePoint file library but the same results could have been achieved using Z-OptimiZr Client for SharePoint or Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Databases working on files already stored in some SharePoint file libraries:
The screenshot below displays a SharePoint library containing some Microsoft Office XML files (DOCX and PPTX files), not optimized by Z-OptimiZr SP RT:
This second screenshot displays another SharePoint library on which Z-OptimiZr SP RT has been made active and to which we have uploaded the same set of XML files.
The uploaded files appear in the same order in both screenshots.
Look at the differences on the file sizes:
As you can see, the Z-OptimiZr SP RT XML Optimization feature has been able to reduce the volume of the above files by more than 50%.
The resulting files are still native XML files that can be opened in their native MS Office Word and PowerPoint applications with no need for any decompression utility. There is no perceptible loss of quality.
The spreadsheet below, issued from the log files of Z-OptimiZr SP RT, gives an idea of the power of the Z-OptimiZr SP RT native XML optimization feature.
We encourage you to check by yourself in your own SharePoint environment using the Z-OptimiZr evaluation Kit.
You can for instance run Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Databases in test mode on some of your existing SharePoint libraries.
Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Databases, when launched in test mode, produces detailed log files about the savings it would be able to deliver (on line per file) on the specified target libraries without replacing the files in the libraries. These numbers are real numbers since the file optimization is performed for real in test mode. (The only thing that is not done in test mode is the replacement of the files into the libraries).
This is a very quick and easy way to check which kind of volume reduction ratios Z-OptimiZr would be able to deliver on your own SharePoint file and image libraries. You do not even need to use a test library since the processed files will remain untouched in the target SharePoint libraries.
Setting-up Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Database on a SharePoint server is instant. (This is a batch program installed by a MSI package; all the Z-OptimiZr files are installed in a same program folder).
Running Z-OptimiZr SP DB in in test mode is only a question of launching the Z-OptimiZr SP DB program providing the name of the target libraries on the command line or in a parameter file.
It will take you only a few minutes to start getting numbers.
