Abstract

See full text

The invention relates to methods and associated systems for managing application workloads and data storage resources. Techniques are disclosed for determining the I/O capacity of a data storage resource for a given workload and allocating resources according to administrator requirements. The invention may be implemented as a transparent layer between the application and the data storage resource, for example, in the file system.
