Google's lz4 is also a very nice algorithm with 33% better compression
performance than snappy and 2X the decompression performance in some
benchmarks also with a bsd license:

If we judge only performance, we will select lz4. However, we should think
 another important factor which is software robustness, achievement, bug
fix history, and etc... If we see unknown bugs, can we fix it or improve
algorithm? It seems very difficult, because we only use it and don't
understand algorihtms. Therefore, I think that we had better to select
robust and having more user software.
