Topic: Data Compression

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. Under the project — ComPRESS: Compression and Progressive Retrieval for Exascale Simulations and Sensors — LLNL scientists will seek better understanding of data-compression errors.

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.

Project

fpzip is a library for lossless or lossy compression of multidimensional floating-point arrays. It was primarily designed for lossless compression.

Project

Highlights include Computation’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.
