  • LZ4 Compression In ZFS “For a long time now, ZFS has allowed for transparent compression of datasets using a number of user-selectable algorithms, one of the most frequently used ones being LZJB. With the integration of issue #3035, Illumos now also includes support for LZ4, an extremely fast BSD-licensed algorithm designed and written by Yann Collet. LZ4′s high performance and features make it a good potential replacement for LZJB in the future.”
    Congratulations and thanks to Sašo Kiselkov for this great work!
