As all-flash array technology matures and moves 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 peta-bytes of ephemeral data that require large
compression rates and data write throughput. In these applications,
storage controller overhead from data compression can lead to
significant performance impacts. 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 accelerators can
provide the same compression throughput as 14 Xeon cores performing
LZO/LZ4. Additionally, the AHA374 GZIP accelerator increases flash
memory cycle lifetime and storage capacity by almost 50% by providing
higher compression ratios than LZO/LZ4.
For almost three decades, AHA has been the global leader in Lossless
Data Compression and Forward Error Correction and now supports full
digital modem solutions and crypto acceleration technologies. Based in
Moscow, Idaho, the design center develops and markets ICs, PCBs, and IP
