data compression techniques


Data compression is the process of modifying, encoding or converting the bits structure of data in such a way that it consumes less space on disk. It enables reducing the storage size of one or more data instances or elements. Data compression is also known as source coding or bit-rate reduction.

There are two kinds of compression: Lossless and Lossy. Lossy compression loses data, while lossless compression keeps all the data. Lossless compression allows the potential for a file to return to its original size, without the loss of a single bit of data, when the file is uncompressed.

Compression frees up drive space and closes up memory gaps, reducing the time needed to locate data on a drive. Speed up backups. Compressed files transfer faster and use less bandwidth than their uncompressed counterparts. A good compression strategy thus supports an effective backup plan

Many data processing applicatiors involve storage of large volumes of alphanumeric data such as names, ad- dresses, inventory item descriptions, and general ledger chart-of-accounts descriptions. Documents for text ed- itors and for legal, medical, and library applications also
