[Gluster-users] When to use striped volumes?

Hi Krutika,

The use-case would be storage for a parallel computing application with high concurrency.

How's striping fit into different use-case scenarios? We are targeting other applications as well, for example, Hadoop, Virtual Desktop, etc.

My Best,

Could you describe what use-case you intend to use striping for?

Hello everyone,

We are trying to set up a Gluster-based storage for best performance. On the official Gluster website. It says:

Striped – Striped volumes stripes data across bricks in the volume. For best results, you should use striped volumes only in high concurrency environments accessing very large files.

Is there a rule-of-thumb on what size qualifies as "very large files" here?

Many thanks,
