lizard - Lizard (formerly LZ5) is an efficient compressor with very fast decompression

  •        159

Lizard library is based on frequently used LZ4 library by Yann Collet but the Lizard compression format is not compatible with LZ4. Lizard library is provided as open-source software using BSD 2-Clause license. The high compression/decompression speed is achieved without any SSE and AVX extensions. The following results are obtained with lzbench and -t16,16 using 1 core of Intel Core i5-4300U, Windows 10 64-bit (MinGW-w64 compilation under gcc 6.2.0) with silesia.tar which contains tarred files from Silesia compression corpus.

lz4-java - LZ4 compression for Java

  •    C

LZ4 compression for Java, based on Yann Collet's work available at http://code.google.com/p/lz4/. This library provides access to two compression methods that both generate a valid LZ4 stream fast scan (LZ4) and high compression (LZ4 HC). The streams produced by those 2 compression algorithms use the same compression format, are very fast to decompress and can be decompressed by the same decompressor instance.

lz4 - Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

  •    C

LZ4 is lossless compression algorithm, providing compression speed at 400 MB/s per core, scalable with multi-cores CPU. It features an extremely fast decoder, with speed in multiple GB/s per core, typically reaching RAM speed limits on multi-core systems.Speed can be tuned dynamically, selecting an "acceleration" factor which trades compression ratio for more speed up. On the other end, a high compression derivative, LZ4_HC, is also provided, trading CPU time for improved compression ratio. All versions feature the same decompression speed.

lzham_codec - Lossless data compression codec with LZMA-like ratios but 1

  •    C++

LZHAM is a lossless data compression codec written in C/C++ (specifically C++03), with a compression ratio similar to LZMA but with 1.5x-8x faster decompression speed. It officially supports Linux x86/x64, Windows x86/x64, OSX, and iOS, with Android support on the way. LZHAM is a lossless (LZ based) data compression codec optimized for particularly fast decompression at very high compression ratios with a zlib compatible API. It's been developed over a period of 3 years and alpha versions have already shipped in many products. (The alpha is here: https://code.google.com/p/lzham/) LZHAM's decompressor is slower than zlib's, but generally much faster than LZMA's, with a compression ratio that is typically within a few percent of LZMA's and sometimes better.

LZF Compressor- High-performance, streaming/chunking Java LZF codec, compatible with standard C LZF package

  •    Java

LZF-compress is a Java library for encoding and decoding data in LZF format, written by Tatu Saloranta. LZF alfgorithm itself is optimized for speed, with somewhat more modest compression. Compared to the standard Deflate (algorithm gzip uses) LZF can be 5-6 times as fast to compress, and twice as fast to decompress. Compression rate is lower since no Huffman-encoding is used after lempel-ziv substring elimintation.

c-blosc - A blocking, shuffling and loss-less compression library that can be faster than `memcpy()`

  •    C

Blosc is a high performance compressor optimized for binary data. It has been designed to transmit data to the processor cache faster than the traditional, non-compressed, direct memory fetch approach via a memcpy() OS call. Blosc is the first compressor (that I'm aware of) that is meant not only to reduce the size of large datasets on-disk or in-memory, but also to accelerate memory-bound computations. It uses the blocking technique so as to reduce activity in the memory bus as much as possible. In short, this technique works by dividing datasets in blocks that are small enough to fit in caches of modern processors and perform compression / decompression there. It also leverages, if available, SIMD instructions (SSE2, AVX2) and multi-threading capabilities of CPUs, in order to accelerate the compression / decompression process to a maximum.

miniz - miniz: Single C source file zlib-replacement library, originally from code

  •    C

Miniz is a lossless, high performance data compression library in a single source file that implements the zlib (RFC 1950) and Deflate (RFC 1951) compressed data format specification standards. It supports the most commonly used functions exported by the zlib library, but is a completely independent implementation so zlib's licensing requirements do not apply. Miniz also contains simple to use functions for writing .PNG format image files and reading/writing/appending .ZIP format archives. Miniz's compression speed has been tuned to be comparable to zlib's, and it also has a specialized real-time compressor function designed to compare well against fastlz/minilzo. Please use the files from the releases page in your projects. Do not use the git checkout directly! The different source and header files are amalgamated into one miniz.c/miniz.h pair in a build step (amalgamate.sh). Include miniz.c and miniz.h in your project to use Miniz.
