Big Block Bypass Mode Improves QoS for Scale out Storage
After commuting in Silicon Valley for a few decades now, I can really appreciate all of the techniques that the IT industry has invented to improve Quality of Service (QoS) for data center infrastructure. After all, in the data center, like on our roadways, ever-increasing scale and density are the mother of all invention!
As an early Hybrid Toyota Prius adopter, I was able to use the carpool lane and laughed at everyone else while flying by and getting to work three times faster due to my privileged driving and the improved the overall QoS I was experiencing. Rules change with technology advancements; now I watch the new electric cars cruise by in my former spot, and it’s painfully clear that big trucks cause the bottlenecks, so maybe the solutions is to let them have the car pool lane!
