Application scenarios of automatic thin provisioning

Application scenarios of automatic thin provisioning:
Automatic thin provisioning is applicable to various storage scenarios and in most cases can replace traditional LUNs and improve cost-effectiveness. Thin provisioning is service-sensitive.
Its work efficiency varies with the services. It is particularly applicable in situations where high I/O performance is not demanded.
Dynamic capacity allocation depends on the architecture of a file system. For the file systems such as NTFS, the data is stored on the beginning of a disk, and the capacity utilization rate is high even when the data amount is large. However, for the file systems such as EXT, where the data is stored in a distributed manner, automatic thin provisioning may cause the waste of storage resources.
