SolidFire’s benchmark for true storage Quality of Service (QoS) sets the standard for delivering an exact level of performance and bandwidth within multi-tenant infrastructures. We built it from the ground up to guarantee performance for large-scale storage infrastructure despite tenant activity or failure condition – a solution made possible only through six core architectural elements.
Different types of storage media are combined to deliver different tiers of performance and capacity. Predictive algorithms move data to different tiers based on historical information.
Hard limits are set for the amount of I/O or bandwidth an application can consume.
Applications are specified as “mission critical,” “moderate,” or “low” – ranking them in relation to every app in the system.
