The SDK enables the implementation of the industry-standard zlib software compression protocols that are broadly proliferated throughout network and storage applications. The SDK-enabled system detects the presence of an AltraFlex card via the drivers, and automatically offloads the protocol processing to it. In the event the SDK detects no AltraFlex card, the CPU continues to process the routines. The SDK can be deployed across a whole infrastructure or product line, with or without AltraFlex cards, giving design teams the flexibility to easily and rapidly incorporate AltraFlex hardware acceleration in next-generation designs and as after-market upgrades.
