Our thinking was simple: Can we make data smaller by adding compute cycles to the compression process? We could, but if we did this on a typical laptop, it would take forever. So why not turn to the cloud? We had our Project Twitch servers already in place, so why not use them as a massive compression/uncompression farm? So give it a try and let us know what you think. There are a set of easy steps to follow on:
Working with data in addition to applications is alive in the lab.
