Netiquette IQ Technical Terms Of The Day - FLAPE & FLOUD - Do You Know What Thev Are?


FLAPE is an approach to tiered storage that relies on two storage technologies, flash plus tape.

This approach uses flash storage as primary storage but also writes a copy to a linear tape file system. When the data is being accessed frequently, it is recalled from flash. When the data is no longer being accessed frequently, it can be deleted from flash storage and the permanent, archival copy will still reside on tape.

FLOUD, a similar approach to tiered storage, also uses flash for primary storage and cloud storage for secondary storage. Both approaches allow storage administrators to store data immediately into the archive as it is written to primary storage so that instead of moving data into the archive at some later point in time, a file that has reached its archive point can simply be deleted from the primary storage.
