blosc


A blocking, shuffling and lossless compression library


Productivity/Archiving/Compression

Blosc is a compressor for binary data, designed to transmit data to the processor cache faster than the traditional, non-compressed, direct memory fetch approach via a memcpy() call. Blosc is not only a compressor for data size reduction, but also for accelerating memory-bound computations.

It uses the blocking technique to reduce activity on the memory bus, which works by dividing datasets in blocks that are small enough to fit in caches of processors and perform (de)compression there. SIMD and multi-threading capabilities are leveraged if available.

Blosc is a metacompressor; it can use different compression algorithms, such as BloscLZ, LZ4, LZ4HC, Snappy and Zlib.
