Intel® QuickAssist Technology Accelerates Hadoop* Applications

Compression acceleration increases the throughput and capacity of Intel® architecture platforms running Hadoop*

Hadoop* Architecture
Hadoop is a scalable, distributed data storage and analytics engine that can store and analyze massive amounts of unstructured and semi-structured data. The distributed architecture of Apache Hadoop is comprised of multiple nodes (sometimes thousands), which are individual servers that run an off-the-shelf operating system and the Apache Hadoop software. Input file sizes can be on the order of one terabyte (TB), so moving this data both within and around the server cluster can require a lot of disk and network bandwidth, leading to significant delays.

One way to reduce the impact of transferring large data volumes is to compress them before they are sent onto the next Hadoop phase.
