DEFLATE compression algorithms traditionally use either a dynamic or static compression table, with tradeoffs in processing time. The Intel® Intelligent Storage Acceleration Library (Intel® ISA-L) semi-dynamic compression comes close to getting the best of both worlds. Learn how.
Intel® ISA-L provides the tools to help accelerate and optimize storage on Intel® architecture (IA) for everything from small office NAS appliances up to enterprise storage systems. The functions provided in this library help with storage recoverability, data integrity, data security, and faster data compression mechanisms. This article provides a high level functional overview of Intel ISA-L.
Storage efficiency technologies like compression and deduplication with rapid generation of cryptographic hashes are available now via the Intel® Intelligent Storage Acceleration Library (Intel® ISA-L). Code sample illustrates how to use this powerful feature.
A traditional compiler translates a high-level computer program into machine code for the CPU you want to run it on. An interpreted language translates a high-level language into the machine code for some imaginary CPU. For historical reasons, this imaginary CPU is called a "virtual machine" and its instructions are called "byte code." One advantage of this approach is development speed: creating...
In this article, we examine how Intel developers optimized Apache Spark* for Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory.
