I get asked quite often why the heading for FlexRAID states “Storage data management” as opposed to “Data storage management”.
Well, FlexRAID concerns itself with the data and not the storage. Hence it concerns itself with storage data (data that is stored) as opposed to transactional/transient data (data that is not stored).
Data storage management leads to managing the storage mediums, which is mostly a secondary concern of FlexRAID.
In fact, the sole form of storage management function in FlexRAID is provided thanks to its client UI as the core does not concern itself with such thing at all.
It is the UI that provides disk organization and S.M.A.R.T monitoring as a form of disk storage management.
In sum, FlexRAID focuses only on data and more specifically on storage data.
