The advent of exascale computer systems poses new challenges, motivating methods to cope with vastly increased amounts of simulation data. Enter data compression and reduction. Of particular interest are multilevel and hierarchical reduction methods, which split input data into a sequence of components tailored to the heterogeneous storage media of modern machines. Such methods are especially appropriate when the applications for which the data are to be used require varying levels of resolution.
