The preceding chapter covered how disk arrays can combine many disks into a unit that has a high-aggregate input/output (I/O) performance. This technique enables the construction of high-performance file systems that are accessible from single systems. When combined with a networked file system such as NFS and high-performance networking hardware, many client nodes may have access to this resource, enabling I/O to a shared storage system from a parallel application.
