Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ENABLING A STORAGE SYSTEM TO SUPPORT MULTIPLE VOLUME FORMATS SIMULTANEOUSLY
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT A UN SYSTEME DE STOCKAGE DE SUPPORTER PLUSIEURS FORMATS DE VOLUME SEPAREMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system and method enables a storage system to support multiple volume type simultaneously. A volume type field is contained within a file system information block that permits the storage system to determine the type of volume of a particular volume associated therewith. The storage operating system may then interpret various on-disk data structures in accordance with the appropriate volume type.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un système et un procédé permettant à un système de stockage de supporter plusieurs types de volume simultanément. A cet effet le champ de types de volume du bloc d'informations du système de fichiers permet au système de stockage de déterminer le type de volume d'un volume particulier lui étant associé. Le système de gestion du stockage peut alors interpréter différentes structures de données figurant sur un disque en fonction du type de volume approprié.
