GB Labs has introduced Dynamic Bandwidth Control, which enables its storage clients to prioritise the use and capacity of available bandwidth, so that the entire system operates at peak performance at all times.

Traditionally, client storage usage is capped at certain levels to reserve capacity for priority users, whether or not it is being used. This can restrict performance for others who could make use of that extra capacity.

To counter this, GB Labs developed Dynamic Bandwidth Control, which identifies and selects high, medium and low priority users and constantly evaluates and balances performance. This guarantees that every user gets the full performance they need and expect.

GB Labs CEO-CTO Dominic Harland said: “Dynamic Bandwidth Control is all about using the available storage until the usage priorities change, as they often do. This capability, unique to GB Labs storage systems, doesn’t have to be scheduled. It can be implemented whenever it’s needed. The same applies whether storage is in use by entire workgroups or a single individual. If required, bandwidth usage can also be rearranged and managed on-the-fly.”
