The Importance of Variable Block Sizes in an All-Flash Array
Today, flash providers are reporting varied block sizes for I/O in order to demonstrate optimal performance. Unfortunately, the reported block sizes rarely exist in the real world. With real-time analytics producing enormous I/O requests, supporting these varied workloads is critical.
Take a look at this white paper to gain insight into a scale-out all-flash array built to support mixed workloads that combine high IOPs and bandwidth with latency. Find out how this approach optimizes the I/O layout and joins a variable block size algorithm – optimized for any I/O size – with a true scale-out architecture.
