SSD as a staging area

Content Software for File User Guide

Part Number

Since writing directly to an object store demands high latency levels while waiting for approval for the data to be written, with the Content Software for File system, there is no writing directly to object stores. Much faster writing is performed directly to the SSDs, with very low latency and much better performance. Consequently, in the Content Software for File system, the SSDs serve as a staging area, providing a buffer that is big enough for writing until the later data tiering to the object store. Upon completion of writing, the Content Software for File system is responsible for tiering the data to the object store and releasing it from the SSD.
