This bootstrapped Chennai-based startup has created a product with a brain of its own to compress …

Over 295 billion gigabytes (or 295 exabytes). That’s the amount of data we have stored since 1986. The number is simply mind-boggling. Fortunately, we have several compression servers in place that help reduce the number of bits needed to represent data. This in turn can not only help save storage capacity but increase the speed of file transfers and also reduce the cost of storage of the hardware and network bandwidth. This is exactly what Skcript’s SHRINK does. It is a compression server that uses several compression algorithms, where each file is analysed, and a machine-learning technique is used to compress the data. “We train computers to arrive at the best possible lossless compression for the customer’s unstructured data,” says 27-year-old Karthik K, Founder and CEO, Skcript. SHRINK is a…
