Efficient disk utilization - Work Volume Load Sharing

The Work Volume Load Sharing function makes use of the Operating System's intimate knowledge of the composition of the ETERNUS DX. As a result, volume data is allotted to different disk drives. This means that the access load is not concentrated to only a few physical drives.
The result is consistently higher processing speeds.

Work volume load sharing


  • Prevents storage access bottlenecks
  • Improves overall access performance
