Compression on Bulk Export APIs?

Re: Compression on Bulk Export APIs?

requesting to compress the request only results in a faster transfer, no other benefits...

Right, that would be the only guarantee (and while it is a definite improvement, downloading uncompressed 500MB doesn't take long anyway, considering you can only do it once per day).

Having the quota apply after compressing data may or may not happen in the future, I guess. Depends on what the 500 MB daily limit was really meant to address, e.g. saving Marketo's external network utilization or (implicitly) saving database server/client resources or both.
