Content Software for File User Guide

Part Number

In tiered filesystems, the Content Software for File system optimizes storage efficiency and manages storage resources effectively by:

  • Tiering only infrequently accessed portions of files (warm data), keeping hot data on SSDs.
  • Efficiently bundling subsets of different files (to 64 MB objects) and tiering them to object stores, resulting in significant performance enhancements.
  • Retrieving only the necessary data from the object store when accessing it, regardless of the entire object it was originally tiered with.
  • Reclaiming logically freed data occurs when data is modified or deleted and is not used by any snapshots. Reclamation is a process of freeing up storage space that was previously allocated to data that is no longer needed.
Note: Only data which is not logically freed is taken into account for licensing purposes.
