RealTime Data Compression: LZ4

LZ4 is a very fast compressor, based on well-known LZ77 Lempel-Ziv algorithm.Originally a fork from LZP2, it provides better compression ratio for text files and reaches impressive decompression speed, in the range and beyond 1GB/s per core !, especially for binary files. These speeds are scalable with multi-threading modes, quickly reaching RAM speed limits on multi-core systems.
