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 works well for compressing numerical arrays that contains data
with relatively low entropy, like sparse data, time series, grids with
regular-spaced values, etc.
python-blosc a Python package that wraps Blosc.
