Sapphire GZip Utility- The memory available on the devices is undoubtedly increasing as technology evolves, but so is the amount of data we are storing. We can now store more information about products and customers allowing a smoother daily run of the business.
However, we may sometimes find that our data is still, too big. Imagine transferring a product catalogue over a GSM connection which may not only take a long time, but be costly in connection charges. The solution is to be able to transfer the data in a compressed format and decompress it on the device.
The solution is to use the Sapphire GZip Utility. Data can be compressed on the server in the gz format or a multi-file zip file. This can be decompressed on the client device once it has been downloaded. Alternatively, it could be used to compress certain parts of your data on the device if it isn’t being used frequently, giving the device more memory to operate with.
The Sapphire GZip Utility makes file compression and decompression simple with the following features:
Compress a file into the GZ file format
Decompress a GZ file onto the device
Compress multiple files into the Zip file format
Decompress a Zip file on to the device
