What’s New in StarWind SAN V8 Beta 3 

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. Use the LSFS virtual device type when thin provisioning and snapshots features are needed.

LSFS device:

Correct processing of device size parameters and usage of available storage of underlying disk.

Fixed he issue which led to disk write errors (when certain amount of data was written on the device and device files multiplied). 

Synchronous replication for LSFS device:

Fixed snapshot management functionality: creation and deletion of snapshots now works correctly.

Fixed the issue, where the state of HA node changed to “unsynchronized ” without any reason. 

VSS providers:

Hardware VSS provider is now available for LSFS devices and LSFS devices with synchronous replication.

Software VSS Provider is now available for LSFS devices. 

Asynchronous replication:

Replication on very slow channels is now possible. Mounting of snapshot fixed.

Replication algorithm fixed.

Minor fixes to the VAAI commands processing implemented. 


There are many more improvements and fixes. Just Sign up for their public beta-testing program and try new features of the software-defined storage. They will appreciate it if you Leave your feedback and help them improve the software.
