Unique among data compressors, zfp is designed to be a compact number format for storing data arrays in-memory in compressed form while still supporting high-speed random access.
Topic: Data Compression
zfp is an open-source C/C++ library for compressed floating-point and integer arrays that support high throughput read and write random access.
High-precision numerical data from computer simulations, observations, and experiments is often represented in floating point and can easily reach terabytes to petabytes of storage.
LLNL is participating in the 34th annual Supercomputing Conference (SC22), which will be held both virtually and in Dallas on November 13–18, 2022.
The new oneAPI Center of Excellence will involve the Center for Applied Scientific Computing and accelerate ZFP compression software to advance exascale computing.
Winning the best paper award at PacificVis 2022, a research team has developed a resolution-precision-adaptive representation technique that reduces mesh sizes, thereby reducing the memory and storage footprints of large scientific datasets.
The Department of Energy's Office of Science interviewed LLNL computer scientist Peter Lindstrom about his work since receiving the 2011 Early Career Award.
An LLNL-led effort in data compression was one of nine projects recently funded by the DOE for research aimed at shrinking the amount of data needed to advance scientific discovery.
fpzip is a library for lossless or lossy compression of multidimensional floating-point arrays. It was primarily designed for lossless compression.
Highlights include the directorate's annual external review, machine learning for ALE simulations, CFD modeling for low-carbon solutions, seismic modeling, and an in-line floating point compression tool.
hzip 1.0.1 is a C++ library for lossless compression of structured and unstructured meshes composed of cells with hypercube topology.
