AHA Announces 10 and 20 Gigabit Per Second GZIP Accelerators

AHA Products Group announced today the introduction and immediate availability of two new GZIP Compression Accelerator products. This latest development, following a long history of compression products, has unmatched performance and power savings. Both cards support GZIP, ZLIB, LZS, and Deflate and have a low profile, PCI-Express® Gen-2 x8 form factor. The AHA371 and AHA372 products provide expansion control, on-the-fly compressed data verification for high integrity storage systems, and excellent compression ratios while performing full duplex compression and decompression at 10 or 20 Gbps throughput, respectively. Device drivers are available free for a variety of operating systems.

With almost 3 Billion Gigabytes (GB) of data being generated every day, computing systems are facing throughput, latency, and storage challenges like never before. By providing the equivalent compression performance of several servers, the AHA371 and AHA372 high-speed compression accelerators enable systems to store more data and transfer at faster rates. AHA has again demonstrated its leadership position by delivering a GZIP hardware solution that can greatly increase throughput and energy efficiency while reducing CPU utilization and latency. These new accelerators deliver a quick ROI through maximizing system performance and offer a compelling choice over competing GZIP solutions.

AHA compression solutions are used by tier 1 storage, WAN Optimization, Big Data, banking, and high frequency trading companies world-wide. AHA remains the preferred supplier for GZIP acceleration due to unmatched customer support directly from their development engineers.

“New and existing customers alike love the high-performance and future-proof nature of a single driver for all of our GZIP accelerators,” stated Jeff Hannon, AHA’s General Manager and Vice President of Engineering. “Most customers have evaluated and verified our performance in less than an hour, and we have an easy migration path from 5 to 20 Gbps with 40 and 80 Gbps solutions available in the very near future.”


The AHA371 and AHA372 have been released to production and orders are being accepted now. AHA is also offering free 30-day evaluations of the new cards for qualified customers.
