info

Snapshots are compressed backups of the database directory of a polkadot or kusama node. If you start a node for the first time it will start building from start (genesis), which will take a while. If you download an up to date database your node will be up and running quicker.

The snapshots are available for kusama --chain ksmcc3 and polkadot --chain polkadot in the paritydb --database paritydb and rocksdb --database rocksdb format (rocksdb being the default). They are pruned with --pruning 1000, which is sufficient for a validator node.
