In learning more, they decided to start the process with Microsoft.
Microsoft used a different formula for their success. While Microsoft Storage Spaces supports automated teiring across HDD and SSD storage, JustFab used something a tad bit different for their success. For Hyper-V the VMs are strictly SSD or HDD- no tiering. This allows them to utilize Cluster-shared Volume (CSV) Caching, a Microsoft Windows Server 2012 feature that lets you cache read IOPS in the memory of your Hyper-V or Scale-out File Server (SOFS), further improving the performance. Some of their databases are tiered, and others aren’t. This allowed for more storage to come alive for JustFab and they loved it. In addition, JustFab also wanted speed, so who did they call?
