Log-Structured File System (LSFS) SDK

LSFS is a specialized file system that stores multiple files of virtual devices and ensures high performance during writing operations with a random access pattern. This file system resolves the problem of slow disk operation and writes data at the speed that can be achieved by the underlying storage during sequential writes. LSFS SDK improves the performance of any storage or virtualization solution where it is implemented, and allows for the prompt storing of random-accessed data from a single source or multiple data streams from several sources.

StarWind LSFS SDK provides:

  • A storage layer that delivers high I/O rates during random access writing
  • Reliable Snapshot technology
  • Thin Provisioning that effectively allocates storage space
  • Powerful Deduplication technology that optimizes storage space consumption.
LSFS SDK includes the software library, code samples, and complete API documentation
