pFPC: A Parallel Compressor for Floating-Point Data

Martin Burtscher, Paruj Ratanaworabhan
2009 2009 Data Compression Conference  
This paper describes and evaluates pFPC, a parallel implementation of the lossless FPC compression algorithm for 64-bit floating-point data. pFPC can trade off compression ratio for throughput.  ...  For example, on a 4-core 3 GHz Xeon system, it compresses our nine datasets by 18% at a throughput of 1.36 gigabytes per second and by 41% at a throughput of 570 megabytes per second.  ...  Smith and Storer [9] proposed two parallel algorithms for data compression based on textual substitution. These algorithms target systolic array architectures.  ...
