There is no single storage format for Jackrabbit. It depends on your
configuration, mainly the PersistenceManager and DataStore. Typically
a database persistence manager is used, for embedding it locally, the
derby based PM is useful. See
http://jackrabbit.apache.org/jackrabbit-configuration.html and

There is no PM or DataStore that does compression. However, using a
datastore can reduce required space as binaries are only stored once,
regardless how often they are used in the repository.

Regarding archiving: JCR itself provides versioning as part of its API
and Jackrabbit supports it. Client applications must explicitly say
when new versions should be created.
