The compaction strategy choice really matters when setting up a cluster.
In such a use case, I mean MagnetoDB, we can assume that the database
will be updated frequently. Thus LCS is more suitable than STCS.

Yes, if read/write ratio >= 2 then LCS is a must have.
Just be aware that LCS is more IO intensive during compaction than STCS,
but it's for a good cause.
