The Effects of Virtual Volume Layout on Data Loss and Availability Probabilities for Software-Defined Storage
James Jackson, Excelero Storage
As storage technology has evolved over the years, so have techniques for optimizing various aspects of the storage. This paper compares techniques still in production that optimized I/O characteristics, with contemporary techniques that optimize reliability. With solid-state disks such as NVMe1 disks, it is no longer necessary to optimize for I/O characteristics. Software Defined Storage (SDS) has the flexibility to perform such contemporary optimizations.
