Hyperconverged Storage Pool - Terminology

The following terms are used in Hyperconverged Storage Pools.

  • Brick

    A Brick is typically the whole disk in terms of Storage Pool.

  • Disperse Factor

    Dispersed volumes are based on erasure codes, providing space-efficient protection against disk or server failures. It stores an encoded fragment of the original file to each brick in a way that only a subset of the fragments is needed to recover the original file. The number of bricks that can be missing without losing access to data is configured by the administrator when the volume is created.
