I was thinking about compression and encryption and wondering if anyone has developed a device that will compress information "on the fly" so that it could be sent over a network in real time using less network resources, particularly bandwidth and throughput. I was thinking of something along the lines of a PCI card or some type of external device perhaps. Does such a device exist already?
There has been a lot of work done on compression but I don't know what products, if any, are available as PCI cards.
