p7zip also has multi-thread support (multiple-CPU) and EXCELLENT 
compression algorithm. I use it to compress some backup and log files 
for StarOS wireless routers. Kernel logs are pulled every hour but 
contain a lot of redundant info (previous parts of the logs). In that 
environment, compression achieved is 10.000%, or 100 times smaller. 10MB 
is packed into 100KB.
