Intel® QuickAssist Technology for Storage, Server, Networking and Cloud-Based Deployments

Security and compression hardware-assisted acceleration

Intel® QuickAssist Technology provides security and compression acceleration capabilities used to improve performance and efficiency across the data center. 

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 and LZS

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.

Transition to a software defined infrastructure (SDI) (e.g., NFV, SDN) to gain greater flexibility and agility over fixed-function compute environments.

By including Intel® QuickAssist Technology in your SDI environment, service providers can increase efficiencies within applications that use security and compression acceleration capabilities.
