Tech Preview: IO DRS - Providing Performance Isolation to VMs in Shared Storage Environments
Rapid adoption of virtualization technologies has led to increased utilization of physical resources, which are multiplexed among numerous workloads with varying demands and importance. Virtualization has also accelerated the deployment of shared storage systems, which offer many advantages in such environments. Effective resource management for shared storage systems is challenging, even in research systems with complete end-to-end control over all system components. Commercially-available storage arrays provide insufficient support for controlling service rates for virtual machines sharing the sharing the same storage volume or LUN, making it difficult for administrators to isolate workloads.
