Since the performance of processors increase at a much higher rate than that of the mass storage devices, the I/O subsystem has created a bottleneck for many computer systems. In order to improve the performance, one has to fully understand both the workloads and the system to which the workload is presented. This paper discusses how these objectives can be met by using workload analysis and analytic modeling, and applying them in to an Enterprise Storage System (ESS) of an operational Mobile Service Provider (MSP).
