Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-6191) Volume provisioning type option
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 18:07:21 GMT

Yoshikazu Nojima commented on CLOUDSTACK-6191:
----------------------------------------------

To be the best of my knowledge, only qcow2 distinguishes "thin" and "sparse", but most of
the hypervisors distinguish "thin" and "fat". Anyway, as you indicated, it's best implemented
as a disk offering parameter. I updated the design doc. Thanks!

> Thin provisioning of a volume saves consumption of a storage, and fat provisioning minimizes
IOPS performance overhead.
> This feature implements a global setting to provide users an option to select how to
provision volumes.
