Content Software for File User Guide

Part Number

A Content Software for File filesystem operates much like a conventional on-disk filesystem but distributes the data across all servers in the cluster. Unlike traditional filesystems, it is not tied to any specific physical object within the Content Software for File system and serves as a root directory with space limitations.

The Content Software for File system supports up to 1024 filesystems, distributing them equally across all SSDs and CPU cores assigned to the cluster. This ensures that tasks like allocating new filesystems or resizing existing ones are immediate, without operational constraints.

Each filesystem is linked to a predefined filesystem group, each with a specified capacity limit. For those belonging to tiered filesystem groups, additional constraints, including a total capacity limit and an SSD capacity cap, apply.

The available SSD capacity of individual filesystems cannot exceed the total SSD net capacity allocated to all filesystems. This structured approach ensures effective resource management and optimal performance within the Content Software for File system.
