Improve response and throughput
- Overcomes typical storage-related bottlenecks
- Spreads load on physical devices using different channels for different virtual disks
- Detects disk “hot spots” and transparently redistributes blocks across the pool
- Automatically bypasses failed or offline channels
Load balancing across the back-end channels into the physical storage pool complements caching to improve response and throughput. The host computers may also be doing host-based load balancing across their ports. Load balancing helps to overcome short-term bottlenecks that may develop when the queue to a given disk channel is overly taxed, or when one channel fails or is taken offline. SANsymphony-V regularly further fine tunes itself by redistributing disk blocks which may be overloading a specific disk drive.
