  • Lempel–Ziv–Oberhumer
    Lempel–Ziv–Oberhumer (LZO) is a lossless data compression algorithm that is focused on decompression speed.
  • UPX
    UPX (Ultimate Packer for Executables) is a free and open source executable packer supporting a number of file formats from different operating systems.
  • Xz
    xz is a lossless data compression program and file format which incorporates the LZMA/LZMA2 compression algorithms.
  • Lossless compression
    Lossless compression is a class of data compression algorithms that allows the original data to be perfectly reconstructed from the compressed data.
  • Lossy compression
    In information technology, lossy compression or irreversible compression is the class of data encoding methods that uses inexact approximations and partial data discarding to represent the content.
  • Zlib
    zlib is a software library used for data compression.
  • Bzip2
    bzip2 is a free and open-source file compression program that uses the Burrows–Wheeler algorithm.
  • Gzip
    gzip is a file format and a software application used for file compression and decompression.
  • WinZip
    WinZip is a shareware file archiver and compressor for Windows, OS X, iOS and Android developed by WinZip Computing (formerly Nico Mak Computing).
  • Lzop
    lzop is a free software file compression tool which implements the LZO algorithm and is licensed under the GPL.
  • Wandera
    Wandera is a privately held company backed by Bessemer Venture Partners and 83North Venture Capital.
  • Ocarina Networks
    Ocarina Networks was a technology company selling a hardware/software solution designed to reduce data footprints with file-aware storage optimization.
  • Scribal abbreviation
    Scribal abbreviations or sigla (singular: siglum or sigil) are the abbreviations used by ancient and medieval scribes writing in Latin, and later in Greek and Old Norse.
