Cloud Storage Device Performance Enforcement (Cope, Erl)

How can data with different performance characteristics be stored on a cloud storage device compliant with the performance requirements of each dataset?

Cloud Storage Device Performance Enforcement

Problem

A cloud consumer can have different performance requirements for different datasets. If datasets with varying performance requirements reside on a cloud storage device with fixed performance capabilities, the performance requirements will not be met.

Solution

A solution is implemented with the ability to match and compare the performance characteristics of datasets against performance capabilities of a destination cloud storage device.

Application

A cloud storage device performance monitor mechanism manages data stored on a cloud storage device based on performance characteristics. This solution can also enforce policies that prevent data from being copied or moved elsewhere while sending an alert response.
