Snappy is a compression/decompression library. It does not aim for
maximum compression, or compatibility with any other compression
library; instead, it aims for very high speeds and reasonable
compression. For instance, compared to the fastest mode of zlib, Snappy
is an order of magnitude faster for most inputs, but the resulting
compressed files are anywhere from 20% to 100% bigger. On a single
core of a Core i7 processor in 64-bit mode, Snappy compresses at about
250 MB/sec or more and decompresses at about 500 MB/sec or more.
Snappy is widely used inside Google, in everything from BigTable and
MapReduce to our internal RPC systems.
Snappy has previously been referred to as "Zippy".
