At STH, we have the leading third party Intel QuickAssist benchmarks and tips to get QuickAssist working with OpenSSL. Intel has announced a new 100Gbps QuickAssist add-on adapter. Intel QAT is still not the easiest technology to integrate, however, for those that are able to use the set of acceleration technologies it does provide significant offload capabilities.
Here is a lightly edited version of the release Intel sent us:
Intel QuickAssist Technology Adapter
Providing Crypto and Compression Acceleration
Intel QuickAssist technology provides hardware acceleration to assist with the performance demands of securing and routing internet traffic and other workloads, such as compression and wireless 3G and 4G LTE algorithm offload, thereby reserving processor cycles for application and control processing. The Intel QuickAssist technology adapter family are PCIe add-in cards that provide customers with a scalable, flexible and extendable way to offer Intel QuickAssist technology crypto acceleration and compression capabilities to their existing product lines.
