Will Erasure Coding in HDP 3.0 use ISA-L, and to what extent does ISA-L performance depend on using Intel chips?

Will Erasure Coding in HDP 3.0 use ISA-L, and to what extent does ISA-L performance depend on using Intel chips?

Erasure Coding is apparently greatly speeded up by the ISA-L libraries. Will HDP be using these libraries? They are open-source, but I assume they have some optimizations for Intel processors, as they were written by Intel.

Good question. ISA-L is used but the dependency of this feature and ISA-L on Intel chip is not clear.
