US Patent – Assignment of Applications in a Virtual Machine Environment based on Data Access Pattern

Assignment of applications in a VM and then map it to a particular datastore is always troublesome because we need to consider so many things. That is just not from the physical storage side but also from VM or virtualization Continue reading US Patent – Assignment of Applications in a Virtual Machine Environment based on Data Access Pattern

Choosing VMware SIOC with Storage Auto Tiering – VCDX Way

Yesterday I wrote a post regarding the IOps, Disk Size, CPU and Memory calculation for the vCOPs Sizing and what would be the impact of it when you submit it for your VCDX defense. Today I will talk about choosing SIOC Continue reading Choosing VMware SIOC with Storage Auto Tiering – VCDX Way

Academic Research – Multi-Threaded Sequential IO can be termed as “Perceived Random IO”

DVSOL Final State

Since last couple of months we are working on some of the Academic Research project where in we are trying to hit the corner cases or you can say nailing down the narrow passages. I thought it is a good Continue reading Academic Research – Multi-Threaded Sequential IO can be termed as “Perceived Random IO”

SIOC Enhancement – Automatic Latency Threshold Computation

There are new automatic latency threshold computations in SIOC. The latency thresholds for the SIOC can now be automatically set using the injector based models. The benefit of this is that SIOC now figures out the best threshold for a Continue reading SIOC Enhancement – Automatic Latency Threshold Computation
