legacy InnoDB compressed tables using row_format=compressed



Quote from https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/compression/

This approach differs significantly from legacy InnoDB compressed tables
using row_format=compressed, where both uncompressed and compressed pages
can be in the buffer pool.

Any details why this is legacy? Should not be used? With a search engine I
found a very old blog posting "InnoDB compression woes" from Percona.

row_format=compressed is attractive when you pay your DBaaS per GB (storage
based usage). Any insides?
