Compress Processing

Disclosed is a method that enables current processors to interact directly with data storage systems using a bus design with a processor operating system and a compressing algorithm. Benefits include more efficient data storage.

Background

Currently, Windows and Unix operating systems compress data and store them in the drive, while retrieving it uncompressed and displaying it in the presentation layer. This process creates additional work for the processor, and is very costly during the data storage and retrieval processes.

General Description

In the disclosed method, when any data is stored into the physical disk, the process first compresses the data and stores it in the drive, then retrieves back the data, decompresses it, and presents it back to the presentation layer without involving the operating system.

Advantages

By embedding the compressing algorithm inside the processor, the disclosed method creates a more efficient way of storing and retrieving data, without spending time in communication with the operating system and processors.

This algorithm can be applicable for all & any Microprocessor chip.
