.NET Framework version 4 ships with a SQL persistence provider as a constituent of the SQL Workflow Instance Store, which is a concrete implementation of the T:System.Runtime.Persistence.InstanceStore class and is used to persist state information in to the SQL Server database. When the instanceEncodingOption attribute is set to GZip for the SqlWorkflowInstanceStore service behavior associated with a service, the SQL persistence provider uses the GZip algorithm to encode instance state information for the instance of the service before saving the state information into the SQL Server persistence database.
