High-Performance Operating System Controlled Online Memory Compression

Online memory compression is a technology that increases the amount of memory available to applications by dynamically compressing and decompressing their working datasets on demand. It has proven extremely useful in embedded systems with tight physical RAM constraints. The technology can be used to increase functionality, reduce size, and reduce cost, without modifying applications or hardware. This paper presents a new software-based online memory compression algorithm for embedded systems.
