As all flash arrays mature into full feature platforms, early adopter applications (such as server virtualization and on-line transaction processing) will be surpassed by industrial internet-of-things applications. These new future applications are expected to generate petabytes of ephemeral data that require high compression rates and data write throughput. In these applications, storage controller overhead from data compression can lead to increased CPU load, higher power consumption, and lower throughput. This presentation compares the performance of different data compression algorithms (LZO, LZ4, GZIP, and BZIP2). Comparisons will be shown in terms of throughput, CPU utilization, and power.
Based on performance experiments, the AHA374 GZIP accelerator card can provide the same compression throughput as 14 Xeon cores performing LZO/LZ4. Additionally, the AHA374 GZIP accelerator card increases flash memory cycle lifetime and storage capacity by almost 50% by providing better compression ratios than LZO/LZ4.
