MaxLinear data compression adds support for Dell storage arrays

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, has announced that the hardware compression solution offered by the MaxLinear XR9240 coprocessor will support the Dell EMC VMAX All-Flash storage array portfolio, the company said.

The XR9240´s parallel data processing engines enable today´s all-flash array storage systems to optimize inline data reduction, both deduplication and compression, without compromising bandwidth or latency. The XR9240 delivers 40 gigabits/second of simultaneous compression, encryption and hashing with compression ratios better than gzip level 4 and latency measured in the tens of microseconds.

This coprocessor was specifically designed for enterprise storage systems and includes data integrity features such as Real Time Verification (RTV) and built-in Cyclical Redundancy Check (CRC) as well as a full suite of encryption algorithms to ensure data security.
