The purpose of data compression is to remove redundancy from data so that it takes less time to transmit and less space to store. Data compression increases system throughput, improves network security and relieves programmers of the task of packing data efficiently. Because data compression operates at the logical level, it cannot be made obsolete by advances in storage or network technology.
