Pensando recruits NetApp as acceleration chip customer

NetApp’s A400 all-flash ONTAP array, announced today, uses a Pensando chip to offload some data reduction processing from the main controller CPUs.

The ASIC chip performs compression, decompression and checksum calculations for deduplication and is located on the A400’s cluster interconnect card, which uses 100GbitE. The actual deduplication is performed by WAFL functionality inside ONTAP.
