Owing to the conceivable future of a large number of internet-connected and security-enabled devices (e.g., in the IoT paradigm), the content-providing servers must deliver; (a) high availability, (b) high throughput and (c) high level of security. This talk focuses on how hardware accelerators can help to meet these requirements, specifically on the IBM’s LinuxONE systems. We investigate the impact of hardware-assisted encryption and compression functions. We present deployment recommendation and advantages of using hardware acceleration for end-to-end transaction processing employed by typical web- and application-servers, and different databases. Competitive results show that leveraging the hardware accelerators provide higher throughput when compared to the x86 platform and alternative deployment schemes.
