Windows is Still Windows Whether in the Cloud, on Hyperconverged or All-flash. Let me start by stating two facts -- facts that I will substantiate if you continue to the end.
Fact #1 -- Windows suffers from severe write inefficiencies that dampen overall performance.
Fact #2 -- Windows is still Windows whether running in the cloud, on hyperconverged systems, all-flash storage, or all three.
No matter where you run Windows and no matter what kind of storage environment you run Windows on, Windows still penalizes optimal performance due to severe write inefficiencies in the hand-off of data to storage. Files are always broken down to be excessively smaller than they need to be. Since each piece means a dedicated I/O operation to process as a write or read, this means an enormous amount of noisy, unnecessary I/O traffic is chewing up precious IOPS, eroding throughput, and causing everything to run slower despite how many IOPS are at your disposal.
