      Description

      Hi Ramon,

      Looking at Facebook's new zstandard library release today and their compression numbers (see this blog post). It would be worth exploring if we can add zstandard as a new collection compression engine in WiredTiger. There is a wrapper library provide to make it zlib-compatible (see here) so it might be a useful short project to investigate.

      Kindest regards,
      Eoin
