Compression has been used in numerous ways for many years, but recently two factors have combined in a way to push compression to the forefront of distributed systems. First, the disparity between processor speeds and I/0 rates is ever-increasing, making it possible to perform compression in software to a much greater extent than was previously feasible. Second, the growth of new applications demanding enormous data rates, such as digital video and audio, makes hardware compression increasinglydoi:10.1145/506378.506397 dblp:conf/sigopsE/Douglis92 fatcat:ces2d54stjbyna5olronmivwuu
