"sub-200 millisecond latency with NVMe over millions of IOPS"


I hope you meant sub-200 microsecond latency....


Let's just agree to using shakes as the storage is getting fast enough for that. 🙂



Lol... I thought I had gotten milliseconds out of my system. Definitely meant microseconds!

I read some of the 9.4 release docs but didn't see quota enforcement for FlexGroups in there.  Did it not make it to 9.4?  Is it targeted for 9.5 (or later)?


@EWILTS_SAS yes, we have FlexGroup enhancements. I cover them in the tech reports TR-4557 and TR-4571 (udates will be out public soon), as well as this podcast:





At a high level, the features added include:


- FPolicy and native file audit

- QoS minimums and adaptive QoS
