Bringing down storage cost is the key to any data storage solution. With big Data, IoT growth and social medias, pressure is put on data volume as information being stored grows exponentially. To help this evolving market, Intel is introducing the Quickassist technology.
The Intel® Quickassist Technology provides security and compression acceleration capabilities to improve performance and efficiency on Intel Architecture platforms. Server, networking, big data, and storage applications use Intel QuickAssist Technology to offload servers from handling compute-intensive operations, such as:
 Symmetric cryptography functions including cipher operations and authentication operations
 Public key functions including RSA, Diffie-Hellman, and elliptic curve cryptography
 Compression and decompression functions including DEFLATE
Ultimately, Intel® Quickassist Technology enables users to meet the demands of ever-increasing amounts of data, especially data with the need for encryption and compression. This helps users to ensure applications are fast, secure and available.
Lately Intel released a new feature for the compression service called Batch and Pack. This new feature enables the application that uses the Quickassist API to improve the system performance by reducing not only the compute cycles needed, but also reducing IoPs, DRAM bandwidth and cache utilization. Furthermore it enables fast and efficient reads performance by providing metadata to the application.
